Community-Design Trends in Coastal Towns

Street Plans principal, Mike Lydon, is quoted in this Coastal Living article about rising community design trends in beach towns. The article highlights trends that create vibrant waterfronts and walkable downtowns. Lydon says that smart street design is key in making places that are walkable and accesible to not just pedestrians and bikes, but also for scooters, electric bikes, and all forms of active mobility. 

The article highlights Street Plans’ Tactical Urbanists’s Guide to Materials and Design to encourage city and community leaders to use Tactical Urbanism as a way to advance long-term goals related to street safety, public space, and more in their cities.
