Urban Interventions for Placemaking: Making Walkable Streets


Make Way for People is a new program launched by the Chicago Department of Transportation which promotes temporary or easily removable strategies for quickly and inexpensively creating new public space in the public right of way. The program consists of four initiatives: People Spots, People Streets, People Plazas, and People Alleys.  Janet will discuss how this Program was developed, review the projects implemented to date, and how the Department is evaluating these initiatives and setting guidelines for further expansion.
