Tactical urbanism is topic of May 17 talk in Menlo Park
Lydia Lee, a member of Menlo Park’s Bicycle Commission sent us this email:
“Wouldn’t be nice to get around town by foot or bike? It’s a great idea, but our current streets don’t always make it easy. Join us for an exciting talk by Julie Flynn of The Street Plans Collaborative and learn about “tactical urbanism”— a city and citizen-led approach to neighborhood building using short-term, low-cost interventions to catalyze long-term changes.
“Flynn recently helped Morgan Hill pilot-test a protected bicycle lane through the town’s commercial center. She will share information about this project, as well as other success stories, to provide ideas for what we can do here in Menlo Park. Your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org is much appreciated, but not necessary to attend.”
The talk will take place on Sunday, May 17 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center’s Cypress Room.
