Tactical Urbanism - Open Asheville
Open Asheville is approaching "tactical urbanism," an idea that's recently gained increasing attention nationwide, with a small project. The organization is demonstrating a way to change a particular area for the better and create a model for larger initiatives in the future.
"Tactical urbanism aims to get projects on the ground fast, to get a response from the public fast so it leads to bigger things," Gonzalez says. "The parklet is something small enough that it will make a statement and it had such a positive response in cities like San Francisco."
