What is Tactical Urbanism? An International Movement

“Cities around the world are using flexible and short-term projects to advance long-term goals related to street safety, public space, and more.”

APCSC and other Complete Streets advocates believe that streets are for people. We know that even with best intentions cities sometimes miss opportunities, or are financially challenged to effect changes away from car-centric streets.  We can get creative to make streets into places for people: for health, for social well-being, for the environment, and for economic benefit.

Tactical Urbanism is all about action. Also known as DIY Urbanism, Planning-by-Doing, Urban Acupuncture, or Urban Prototyping, this approach refers to a city, organizational, and/or citizen-led approach to neighborhood building using short-term, low-cost, and scalable interventions to catalyze long-term change.
