Obama Promotes Non-Car Transportation

This summer, the federal government's Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities is taking applications for $100 million in grants for regional planning projects that promote alternatives to automobile transportation. Unfortunately, despite some high profile transit and rail projects, most of the stimulus spending has gone or will be going towards roads and highways.

With the stated goal of fostering and encouraging local innovation, the OSHC intends to build partnerships across federal agencies and provide resources and tools to help communities realize their own visions for building more livable, walkable, environmentally sustainable regions.

Are what Des Moines area projects promote alternatives to automobile transportation?

Here's my idea.
