City experience

Has anyone provided UX / usability services to a city or local council,

- Road / sidewalk design and maintenance
- Road signs - locations, standards, maintenance
- Navigation signs - to local sites, main roads, points of interest
- Traffic calming
- Pedestrian crossings
- Shared spaces
- and in general, how to make cities more walkable, safe, and a great
place to live.

I'd like to hear your experiences, war stories, and how you convinced the
city that they needed you (or did they "get it" from the start?)
