Event Description

Please Join us for Urban Interventions, a free Tactical Urbanism Workshop on Saturday, February 8th at 3:00PM at the Bourse Co-Working Loft in Downtown New Haven.

How can an inexpensive, short-term project create long-term societal change? Guerilla Wayfinding, Parklets, DIY Crosswalks – these are all examples of an exciting trend in urban placemaking commonly referred to as Tactical Urbanism. This talk will be exceptionally unique. Our two speakers represent the public view from the street AND and the regulatory view from inside city hall: Bottom up AND top down interventions.

The Speakers:

Mike Lydon, Principal of The Street Plans Collaborative, will lead an overview alongside Dan Bartman, Senior Planner at the City of Somerville. The overview of Tactical Urbanism will equip attendees with an understanding of how to plan, fund, and implement projects. Information about how the City of Somerville, and others, have integrated Tactical Urbanism into the municipal project delivery process will also be provided.

Join us to learn about how other communities have used Tactical Urbanism to bring about meaningful change in their cities and towns, and to inspire the practice in the Elm City.

We encourage all attendees to review the Tactical Urbanism Guidebook (Volume I and Volume II) before attending. This event is free and open to all.
