I associate myself with several different cultural, non-profit and social groups. One of which has put out a new publication called “Tactical Urbanism” and I wanted to share it along with a few thoughts. The Next Generation New Urbanists, which is a subgroup of The Congress for the New Urbanism, “CNU” (which I have a somewhat conflicted relationship and association with but that is for a later discussion) produced this field guide in partnership with Mike Lydon and his The Street Plans Collaborative. As a broad overview, I really like the ideas included in this document, the simple and compact way they are presented and the forward thinking nature and spirit of the text. The document, admittedly, has it’s shortcomings and does not claim to be all encompassing. In fact the authors reach out to reader to contribute ideas for future versions and tactics. I have a few ideas I plan on submitting for inclusion and encourage you to have a look and send your additions as well.
