So, the university center recruited Scott Bernstein and 19 other students on its Evanston, Ill., campus to scout for root causes of the neighborhood’s medical problems.

"We witnessed a system out of control," Bernstein says.
A quarter-century later, Bernstein has become famous in Chicago for attacking many of the same types of problems on a metropolitan scale through his Center for Neighborhood Technology. He’s still mapping problems and analyzing their underlying causes—though now with a paid staff of 20 and an annual budget of about $2 million.

The Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors and the Associated General Contractors of Greater Milwaukee also sponsored the event. Listen to an online interview with Scott Bernstein at Smart City Radio here where he talks about the true cost of commuting and the toll it takes on your wallet and your time.

Running on Water · Chris Hayes [cached]

"The Sanitary District's main brochure was called 'How to Bottle Rainstorms,'" says CNT founder Scott Bernstein. "We said, isn't it better to catch raindrops where they fall instead of bottling rainstorms? Conservationists pointed out that rainwater could be put to a variety of uses if captured where it landed or allowed to seep back into the ground, but once it entered the sewer system it became polluted and then had to be treated. The system, in other words, was set up to convert billions of gallons of clean water into polluted water and then back into clean water. This was environmentally destructive, they argued, and economically wasteful.

Bernstein and his allies advocated putting cisterns on buildings to trap rain and use it for such purposes as landscaping and cleaning, setting aside aerated green spaces that rainwater could easily penetrate, and increasing the use of permeable paving surfaces that would let water seep back into the earth.
Bernstein and other environmentalists hope the change will give them a chance to dust off some of their ideas from the 70s.
