Sample text

This has created more opportunities for the public sector to engage people and get valuable input, as well as new pressure on government to be more transparent and respond in real time. This is absolutely not meant to be an academic text. Many people I talk to lament the academic focus of planning and public policy, with little practical focus on management and implementation. I view this work as a handbook of sorts for those who are changing careers, walking into a new job, or deciding how to have the most impact coming out of school.

I consulted Mayor Fenty on the project early on. He said that he was fine with the lanes in concept as long as they were safe and aesthetically suited —28— LESSON #1 Pennsylvania Avenue’s stature as a grand boulevard. He embraced the idea of using the empty space in the middle that once housed the streetcar. Over the course of several months, we met internally with our bike lane task force that crosscut the agency and had planners and engineers working together to further develop this and other bike lane projects.

I was mortified. I had unintentionally deceived my boss and all of our other stakeholders, including those at the federal level. Worse, these bike lanes were completely unsafe and obtrusive. Why? Drivers were instinctively driving down the auto lane–width bike lanes, which could hardly be differentiated from the travel lanes that were there beforehand. How could this have possibly happened!? By the time I called the crews to stop working, they had already striped three blocks of the avenue and the blowback was coming.
