Hiding in Plain Sight, Avi Stopper

Redesign for Intersection at Wewatta & 15th Streets, Molly North

Federal Boulevard Photovoice Project, Mimoko Watanabe

Once Can Make a Difference, Pam Jiner

Currently, most of the street space in Denver is designed primarily for cars - to move as many cars as fast as possible and to store parked cars. Yet streets that are designed for people, not cars, can do so much more. This session will feature four quick presentations in a fun, fast presentation style, showcasing examples of streets that have already been reclaimed and ideas for reclaiming streets in the future.

Learning Objectives

1. … how Denver streets have been reclaimed for people or how presenters envision local people-friendly streets.

2. … about community-led projects, programs, designs and outreach that to advocate for and create vibrant, fun and safe places for people.
