Tactical Urbanism: Taking Short-Term Actions to Generate Long-term Change
Pop-up parks, plazas, and full street redesigns have become powerful, adaptable, creative, and low-cost tools to drive lasting improvements in communities the world over.
Whether creating vibrant plazas seemingly overnight or re-imagining streets to better support transit, walking and cycling, these types of projects, known as “tactical urbanism,” offer a way for communities to gain support for infrastructure investment while inspiring residents and civic leaders to experience and shape their urban spaces in a new way.
Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network as Mike Lydon and Anthony Garcia, authors of Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change, share the key findings from their book and what has changed since it was released.
