Quick Build Projects: Moving from CV-19 Response to Recovery
June 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Cities across the globe are implementing low-cost, flexible transportation solutions to address emerging needs from the pandemic. These solutions have been marketed as “active” or “slow” streets—to enable those sheltered in place to recreate safely.
As we slowly return to work, cities will need to creatively think about getting more people to and from work on limited street space and with lower transit capacity.
Come hear from Mike Lydon, author of Tactical Urbanism, Emiko Atherton, Vice President for Thriving Communities at Smart Growth America, and Warren Logan, Policy Director of Mobility and Inter Agency Relations for the Mayor’s Office of Oakland speak about what they are seeing across the globe and in their cities, and the emerging needs in the road to recovery. These speakers will talk about quick build’s role in this recovery, how to get the funding you need to get projects underway, and lessons learned from implementation and how to make projects permanent.
