The Green Hills Area Plan calls for banning most left hand turns and developing a median in Hillsboro Rd, among other things. I like walkable pleasant cities but am skeptical that you can get people to give up their cars and can turn an area like Green Hills into a pedestrian -friendly area. Part of the plan however makes a lot of sense, such as connecting the Mall to other commercial areas so one does not have to get in the car to go a short distance and the realignment of some of the intersections. If I lived in the area, had a financial interest in the area, had to travel through the area, or visited it often, I would take the time to learn about what is proposed for Green Hills.
