Dick Tracy, Grand Theft Auto and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon

Thousand of years ago the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Fifty years ago Dick Tracy had a wristwatch that was also a telephone. Today Grand Theft Auto impounds vehicles in underground garages. Today also, Louisville is trying to move and reform our current impound facility.

Can Louisville calm and reduce urban traffic to reduce the need for impounding, thus reducing the size of the facility needed? Can we design and build or retrofit a parking garage to serve as our impound facility? Can we hang greenery, some of it edible, from the walls of parking garages?
