Reclaiming the Street

Referred to by many names; woonerfs (Netherlands), verkehrsberuhigter bereich (Germany) home zones (UK), and shared spaces (US); these streets prioritize space for pedestrians and bicyclists. By design they remove cars as the primary form of transportation and allow a more holistic mix of transit options.

How are US cities beginning to embrace new approaches to planning our city streets? What lessons have we learned from models in European cities that are helpful in designing more inclusive spaces? What are models in San Francisco and other American Cities that we can look to?

Join us for an evenings discussion with Bryan Goebel, the Editor of SF StreetsBlog; Kit Hodge, the Director of the Great Streets Project; Architect and Urban Planner David Winslow the designer of Linden Alley, and moderator John Bela of REBAR.
