Do you have ideas for a short-term project that could lead to long-term advances in Chester? Join CHESTER MADE for a two-part community series led by Mike Lydon, principal of the Street Plans Collaborative and co-author of “Tactical Urbanism: Short-Term Action, Long-Term Change.”

Tactical urbanism is a citizen led approach to improve neighborhoods using short term, low-cost, creative projects that inspire long term change. Lydon will lead a community conversation on April 22 and a special build workshop on May 13 to introduce participants to tactical urbanism and how it can benefit the City of Chester.

On April 22 from 1:00 – 5:00, Mike Lydon will introduce community members to tactical urbanism and provide an opportunity for them to think about projects that could take place in areas needing improvement such as parks, crosswalks, bus stops, etc. In addition to participating in a walking tour of Overtown to discuss possible projects, community members will hear about a special opportunity for funding for small tactical urbanism projects.

Space is limited, register now.
