Tactical Urbanism Workshop to be Held in Fayetteville
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Street Plans Collaborative, an urban design firm, has selected Fayetteville as one of six “Beta City” partners associated with the Tactical Urbanist’s Guide to Material and Design project.
The City of Fayetteville, in partnership with the Street Plans Collaborative, will be hosting a tactical urbanism workshop to develop a plan to improve Spring Street as a bicycle and pedestrian connection from the Razorback Regional Greenway to the Fayetteville Square. The workshop is by invitation only and will be held Thursday, November 17, at Nadine Baum Studios. Attendees will include City of Fayetteville staff, Streets Plans Collaborative staff, University of Arkansas campus planners and various design experts and community leaders.
The workshop will consist of an introduction to the principles of tactical urbanism, a planning and design session, and interactive field demonstration. The field demonstration will consist of a temporary bike lane and a crosswalk will be striped with chalk paint on Spring Street to connect the Razorback Regional Greenway to West Avenue. There will be no significant interruption in access to any public streets or trails as a result of the workshop.
