Development & Tactical Urbanism

The Development & Tactical Urbanism Committee researches ways to create citizen-led community development projects that enhance an area's sense of place. The process involves identifying potential team partners, and marrying them together with resources and assets from the community to form a "collaboration." Together these "collaborators" address community development challenges using innovative tactical urbanism strategies, such as building outdoor seating that encourages social connectivity, or testing temporary bike lanes to analyze car/bike functionality on a particular roadway. The Development & Tactical Urbanism Committee uses these small scale projects to catalyze long-term change.
