Next City, one of the leading sources of journalism on urban affairs, interviewed Street Plans’ Principal Mike Lydon to discuss how and why Street Plans is working with cities to sanction Tactical Urbanism. The article mentions Street Plans’ Tactical Urbanism workshop with the City of Fayetteville, Arkansas (pictured above) and how that empowered the City to then create a Tactical Urbanism policy that enables citizens to create their own projects.
“We’re helping design policy that’s intended to be flexible and is able to respond to issues that come up that you can’t account for in a vacuum. You can’t necessarily create the best design on a computer screen. You need to work things out in the street and [City Sanctioned Tactical Urbanism] is the best path for doing that.” – Mike Lydon
