Monday What's on the Web: Greater Greater Washington

Every Monday I highlight other bloggers or web contributors who are making important or interesting contributions to climate, sustainability, transportation or market transformation. Check back each week for another installment.
Greater Greater Washington is a regional blog focused on the Washington DC area. In just a couple of years it has grown to become a highly respected and widely read resource for people interested in issues that affect the current and future Washington DC metro area. Many days it garners over 20,000 page views.

Issues run the gamut, but often focus on transportation and development as drivers for the future. The blog takes a very new urbanist angle on these issues--tending to suggest ideas like complete streets, increased and improved transit, increased costs for driving and parking, better bike facilities, mixed-use and transit-oriented development, etc. It reflects the goals of this blog in that it is working towards positive transformation that will improve our environment and quality of life.

David Alpert runs the blog and has actually become a known person to some in the local media (some like him; some don't). It is clear that some staff at Metro and local jurisdictions read the blog and may actually be taking ideas from it. There are several dozen contributors, and the blog runs several posts a day--so the content is always changing as well as substantial. I am one of those contributors, and you may see my posts here.
