    The Great Streets Challenge: Making Streets Playful Public Places

    The Great Streets Challenge will temporarily transform five main streets into vibrant, healthy, playful public spaces. Community based organizations will design and lead projects through a comprehensive outreach process that will culminate in a physical demonstration of an innovative street design. This process fundamentally disrupts traditional planning and capital development by empowering local communities to re-imagine their front yards – city streets – and then demand permanent change.
