Streets That Work LIVE - April 16, 2016

 On Saturday, April 16th, 2nd St south of Downtown was temporarily transformed by over ten different street demonstration projects, including a fluorescent green bike lane, colorfully patterned crosswalks, a climbing bike lane and narrowed travel lanes south of Garrett Street, bike and pedestrian wayfinding, and even a pop-up picnic area in front of the Glass Building. City Staff, Toole Design Group, TJPDC, University of Virginia urban planning students, the Charlottesville Tree Stewards, and the Tom Tom Founders Festival were just a few of the partners involved. Each project was designed to show Streets that Work principles as they applied to a real Charlottesville context.

Hundreds of people visited the demonstration; you can see photos and their feedback here.

Multi-Day Charrette - May 27-30, 2014

The City hosted a multi-day charrette that took place May 27-30th, 2014 to establish a vision for citywide street design guidelines that balance the needs of all street users, with a particular focus on the pedestrian environment and how streets can be used as public space.

On the first day of the charrette, workshop participants clarified their values for street design. These ideas were further vetted by various focus groups, city staff, and the general public during the week. The charrette concluded with a final presentation highlighting policy changes needed to achieve the shared vision and provided some specific ways that the City could increase network connectivity to improve transportation conditions for all street users.
