Deputy Director of Landscape Architecture Toole Design
Cities, towns, and neighborhoods may have lofty goals to create human-scaled, people-oriented, and mixed-use places. However, obstacles such as vehicular level of service and parking minimums can be tails that wag the placemaking dog in our efforts create vibrant public spaces that benefit our economy and community. This session will also briefly touch on innovative design of active retail and restaurant outdoor spaces that will safely promote social interaction and economic development in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The session leaders will give a short presentation outlining some of these issues and strategies to overcome them, and will follow with open discussion with session attendees.
