Behind the Scenes of Tactical Urbanism in Portsmouth, NH

PS21, Street Plans’ partner in the recently completed Islington Street Lab Tactical Urbanism demonstration project, published a video and summary report of the firm’s work in Portsmouth, NH. The community-based demonstration project spanned five weeks in May and June, and ended with the temporary transformation of Islington Street between Albany and Bartlett Streets in the West End of Portsmouth.

Since the demonstration project, the City of Portsmouth has decided to move forward with a 30-day pilot project testing various elements– like curb extensions and new crosswalks– that were included in the project.
