Description

Rethinking and Activating Public Space in Seattle and Boston

Seattle and Boston are two U.S. cities that have embraced new roles the public sector can play in managing and activating public space, including streets. Seattle's Public Space Management Program and Boston's Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics support innovative public space projects by partnering with city departments, community members, and designers to pilot, test, learn, and scale placemaking initiatives. Presenters will share highlights of their programs and the successes and failures of catalyst projects.

Presenter: Jennifer Wieland Seattle DOT
Co-Presenter: Kris Carter City of Boston
Co-Presenter: Nate Cormier SvR Design Company
