In their recent article on quick-builds and safe streets, Transportation for America, an advocacy organization made up of local, regional and state leaders who envision a transportation system that safely, affordably and conveniently connects people of all means and ability to jobs, services, and opportunity through multiple modes of travel, highlighted Street Plan principals Mike Lydon and Tony Garcia’s groundbreaking book Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change.

“Mike Lydon and Anthony Garcia’s book, Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change, illustrates examples of how the approach can be utilized and includes a toolkit to guide project planning and implementation. According to the guide, any initiative utilizing Tactical Urbanism should consist of three main principles: safety enhancement, ability to adapt across project implementation, and constant innovation.”
