More on Obama's Office of Urban Policy

Cross-posted from Pro-Urb listserv:
Our friends at WalkScore, where several of us smart growth/ transportation reform types are on the advisory board, have created a web site where people can go and suggest, and vote on, their suggestions for Obama's proposed Office of Urban Policy. Obama has said he believes that the nation should have policies designed to promote the health of its metropolitan areas. The office is conceived as something of a supercabinet position that potentially could coordinate policy among the Department of Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, environment, public health and other arenas.

Suggest, vote, and circulate.
