This webinar will begin with an overview of the birth of Tactical Urbanism and its ongoing evolution, and will discuss how it has evolved into something communities and individuals or government entities can take ownership of. Presenters will discuss how Tactical Urbanism has become more "sanctioned" while still maintaining its tenets of flexibility, cost-effectiveness, etc. and how it can be formally integrated into government departments to advance projects. We'll discuss case studies and their successes and failures: Burlington and Miami-Dade programs, among others across the nation. Lastly, the presenters will give some final remarks on how to initiate and execute successful Quick-Build Programs.
