[ARCHIVED] Tactical Urbanism Project

Tactical Urbanism

In an effort to test some projects in a 'quicker, faster, cheaper' manner the City of Eugene is teaming up with community partners (including Lane Council of Governments, City of Springfield, and the University of Oregon) to implement some 'tactical urbanism' style projects.

One of the first will be tried out at the intersection of Clark and Adams street in the Whiteaker Neighborhood. Last month a couple designs were laid out with chalk and cones before a longer term (but still trial) solution is laid out with paint and flexible bollards. Trying out the design with 'paint and plastic' rather than concrete and asphalt allows us to test and refine designs as well as try out new and innovative safety projects before they become permanent.
