“Using Tactical Urbanism to Preserve Downtowns,” National Main Streets Conference, Detroit, Michigan (May 2014)

“Tactical urbanism” is a hot, new, revolutionary movement that is transforming how people revitalize places. One example of tactical urbanism, the Better Block movement, creates short-term “interventions” in a 48-hour period for $1,000 or less, planting the seeds for long-term change. Learn how Main Street communities can benefit from tactical urbanism and the Better Block initiative. Researchers and on-the-ground tactical urbanists will share their examples and experiences and provide practical, “real world” applications that communities can implement. Presenters: Isaac Kremer with Mike Lydon, Street Plans Collaborative and Caitlyn Horose, Orton Family Foundation.
