Street Lab Demonstration Projects and Events

Change can be easier if people can see it and experience it. Sometimes a drawing won't suffice. Temporary demonstration projects allow communities to interact with street and public space design changes before it's made permanent using low-cost materials and a bit of elbow grease. 

Activate a business space, make a safer street, build welcoming public spaces, tell stories and visualize change.  We're here to help.
