Street Reclaiming

Street Reclaiming helps people address neighborhood traffic problems, and make the street a safer place for families and neighbors to socialize. It can be a spontaneous act done by one person, or a neighborhood- project that brings a community together.

Street reclaiming changes the psychological feel of a street; it becomes “outdoor living room” rather than a thoroughfare overrun by traffic. Examples include, community-designed “wiggly” streetscapes that slow traffic, celebrations in the street, art and gardens, reading on the sidewalk, and other every-day activities that fill the streets with people.

See Street Reclaiming: Creating Livable Streets and Vibrant Communities by
David Engwicht, New Society Publishers, 1999. See also Less Traffic.
