Great Streets Newsletter | June 2008
Please enjoy our latest newsletter, which focuses on PPS’s exciting transportation initiatives. Together, we can create great streets!
Fred Kent, President
Project for Public Spaces
This newsletter highlights examples and qualities of great streets around the world and raises the bar substantially on the challenge to change transportation as we know it. We can have great streets in every neighborhood, downtown, city and region...if we want them. PPS can help you realize this transformative movement in your own communities through our "Streets as Places" and "Thinking beyond the Station" initiatives.
Through these efforts, PPS can help communities envision how they can reclaim their streets as places; provide technical assistance to communities who want to redesign their transit facilities as destinations and community anchors; offer training, facilitation and design guidance to transportation professionals and agencies to help them achieve community economic, social and quality of life outcomes; and partner with a city's local advocates and foundations to build a broader campaign around community-based transportation planning.
Please contact Renee Burillo for information about the campaign, the "Thinking Beyond the Station" program, current research on streets and related publications, the Street Audit, and the "Streets as Places" Training program.
