(The GRID Blogger) Bonnie Rodd: Austin, Texas

Bonnie Rodd, Global Site Plans bloggerA big Global Site Plans welcome to our newest blogger, Bonnie Rodd from Austin, Texas.

Originally from the North-Central area of California, Bonnie Rodd found herself at home among the creative, participatory, and sometimes off-beat Austinites. She holds a B.A. in Urban Studies with a minor in Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. Her primary interest is sustainable urban development, focusing on alternative transportation and pedestrianism. Believing that the human element in design is invaluable, she dabbled in some social studies as well.  This past spring she explored the three legs of sustainability in her thesis titled “Making a Case for Affordable Housing in Transit-Oriented Developments: Austin, TX” and developed a model for single-family affordable housing delivery in such neighborhoods. Bonnie currently resides in Austin, Texas, and will be exposing readers to environmental design issues present in both Austin and Central Texas.
