Smart Pandemic Pivots
Monday, May 11th at 12 PM. Free, streaming online.
Join Idaho Smart Growth on Monday, May 11th for the second of the new “Smart Pandemic Pivots” series.
Topic: The Evolution of Our Streets
This webinar will explore – past and present – how we use this large public asset and land use making up on average 80% of our public lands in urban places and whether or not we are getting the most out of this significant public investment.
More teleworking and less driving has left some streets empty. Meanwhile, with more people home and the need for sunshine and a change of scenery, the sidewalks can be a bit crowded, especially if trying to maintain 6 feet of social distancing.
Some cities are experimenting with closing streets to cars to allow more room for cyclists and pedestrians. That could change the way we think about our cities. Join Deanna Smith as she discusses these changes to our urban infrastructure throughout the pandemic, and what that could mean for the future.
Join remotely from any internet-connected device. Email to RSVP. Meeting log in information will be shared via email.
About the Series:
As the United States begins to recover from the COVID-19 health emergency our communities are asking themselves what we have learned in the past few months. Our air is cleaner, so is our water, the slower pace of life is refreshing. This has unleashed a desire to look at the future not just as more of the past but as a new beginning. One that reflects the lessons of the past few months and rebuilds our communities as they reopen into better places.
This new lunchtime series will explore that desire and offer a chance for discovery and discussion.
