Many communities are thinking critically about how they plan and design for their public space. Through low-cost, rapid implementation projects, community-initiated demonstrations are testing low-risk local ideas and finding opportunities that improve public life. This session will explore the challenges and opportunities of modifying the built environment through tactical interventions.

1. Discover the basic planning, design, and implementation techniques to test your own community ideas for public space including active transportation modifications.

2. Learn how these demonstration techniques can provide a phased approach and instill an interdisciplinary approach for engineers, planners, and designers.

3. Provide participants urban and rural case studies documenting effective interventions of tactical urbanism design elements to deliver high impact projects at a low cost and in some instances, have led to long term improvements.
