Over at ThinkMarkets, Sandy Ikeda has a post talking about Vauban, linking to a New York Times article on the Freiburg district.  To be honest, even though I lived there (in the Studentendorf that you can see on this map), I had not realized that parking was so limited, mainly because I did not have a car and moved out right about the time when things were getting finished (though I still have one friend who lives in student housing there, so I get some of the gossip still…).  The district is very small and I should say that, if I remember correctly, Vauban acts kind of like a gated community, with its own level of governance and absurd regulations.
