How Tactical Urbanism Can Help Build a #BetterMainStreet: Part 2

Earlier in August, guest contributor Isaac Kremer provided an overview of tactical urbanism and how it is transforming the way people go about adapting and transforming places that matter most to them. This week, he provides examples of how these ideas have been implemented through Better Block events in two very different places -- Oyster Bay, New York on Long Island and Middlesboro, Kentucky. Oyster Bay was one of the first communities to ever carry out a Better Block project in 2010 and Middlesboro has taken these tactical urbanism ideas to a whole new level making them a centerpiece of a program to promote entrepreneurship and job creation in one of the most economically distressed areas in the United States. Learn more about Better Block and the potential of tactical urbanism projects in this week’s feature article!
