Plazas, Parklets, & Pop-Ups in the Public Realm

Join A Better City to learn about the new tactical public realm projects that have moved from design to implementation this year. In September 2018, the city of Boston released the "Tactical Public Realm Guidelines," which have been instrumental for creating new spaces across the city. Learn from a panel of experts who have worked on public realm projects, including a pedestrian plaza on Birch Street in Roslindale, a parklet in Jamaica Plain, and one-day pop-up plazas across the city. There will be breakout groups to discuss project specifics, including permitting, project costs, funding timelines, community input, and materials.
