The Price of Walkability

In L.A., a walkable neighborhood comes at a price

Walkable neighborhoods are seeing price increases, as this article about the premium that can be charged in walkable areas in L.A. discusses.  How do we help ensure that walkability isn't only for the rich-- that all residents are able to afford to save the costs of car ownership?
