Ok.. so heres the deal.. I don't really understand the topic of what a "social-design" issue is.. so my guess is that it is something that the public dislikes in the design of something because its socially incompatible. If this is the case, then i will become an advocate for the issue of the "Loop" in Sioux Falls, SD, the city that i'm from. For many years the Loop was a hangout place for teens to go on the weekend and drive around or just walk around. About 3 years ago this changed when the city banned people from being on the Loop for the weekends, because of the problems it was causing for downtown traffic. The Loop never had much crime or things like that, for the most part it was a safe place to be if you were with your friends. But because of all the oneway roads, 2 lane roads, and excessive traffic, the Loop just wasnt working anymore. The Loop however was partially made to be the way it was back in the day when all highschoolers would go down there and hangout on the weekend With the growth of the city, it just wasnt feasible anymore. There were debates for weeks about what could be done to change it, but nothing ever passed. If i was the city, i would've either expanded roads or built a couple new roads in order to provide more accessibility to traffic, so that the loop could stay. If the loop was still there, i believe it would bring in a lot more money to downtown because there would be kids there all the time.
So I dont know if thats really what the topic was supposed to be about, and if not, then you just found out a lot about the Loop in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
