Tactical Urbanism

Towards Tactical Urbanism: quick build and design-testing

News Release from Office of the Mayor, August 28, 2018

Honolulu – The Department of Transportation Services, in partnership with the Department of Planning and Permitting, the state Department of Health, and the Hawai‘i Public Health Institute will be hosting a free public lecture on Tactical Urbanism on Wednesday, September 5 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at SALT Kaka‘ako (the Barn, 691 Auahi Street). Join us for an evening of conversation with Tony Garcia from Street Plans Collaborative, who will share stories from projects throughout the country and give advice on how to make real change happen in your community.

Tony is a nationally recognized architect, writer, speaker and advocate in the field of transit, and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. Tony’s work has appeared or been featured by Atlantic Cities, Next American City Magazine, The Daily Business Review,  New Urban News, The Real Deal, Momentum Magazine, Streetsblog, the Miami Herald, The Miami New Times, and the El Paso Times, among other publications. Tony is a coauthor of the globally acclaimed series “Tactical Urbanism: Short-Term Action, Long-Term Changeand co-author of “Tactical Urbanism,” published by Island Press in March 2015.

The City and County of Honolulu is currently assessing the feasibility of expanding its Complete Streets program through quick-build placemaking projects that improve safety for all users and increases the vitality of the urban streetscape. Tactical urbanism is a term used for design-testing and interim projects, such as demonstration and pilot projects that are low-cost and have the potential to catalyze long-term change. While Tactical Urbanism projects have the ability to inspire action and expedite project implementation, they can also widen public engagement and deepen the understanding of local user needs at the neighborhood, block, or building scale. This is done through the gathering of data from the real-world use of streets and the testing of capital projects.

Communities across the globe are embracing an incremental approach and grassroots energy to plan, and implement neighborhood improvement projects. From  bike  lanes  to  park  spaces,  advocates  and  cities  are  increasingly  working together  to make sustainable long-term change using small scale moves.

For more information or if you require special accommodations to attend the lecture, please contact Nicola Szibbo, Transportation Planner at (808) 768-8359, or
