Street Plans’ Principal Mike Lydon spoke at the Placemaking 101 Conference, hosted by the Fulton County Center for Regional Growth, on April 18th in Gloversville, NY. Lydon gave a presentation about Tactical Urbanism’s role in placemaking and the overall power that small-scale, low-cost interventions can have in bringing people together and catalyzing long-term change.
Lydon says that “really small interventions and little changes add up to make a big difference in a community. It allows people to physically experience a different reality today, and showcase a more positive future that signals to a lot of people in that place that things are changing in a positive direction.”
