Public Space and COVID-19: Retrofits for Recovery

Join TOOLBOX peer networking on October 23

Learn how cities are retrofitting their streets to aid public health and economic recovery at PSRC's next TOOLBOX: Peer Networking Series, Public Space & COVID-19: Retrofits for Recovery.

As local jurisdictions continue to address the challenges of COVID-19, adapting streets and public spaces have become critical tools to aid economic recovery while maintaining public health.

Many cities have adopted temporary changes to provide more space for walking, outdoor dining, and other activities safely. As the seasons change, ensuring outdoor activities can be sustained will require innovative solutions.

This session will take a deep dive into this topic, including a review of the Healthy Business Streets guide, a toolkit for local jurisdictions on implementing temporary adjustments to streets. Perspectives from local jurisdictions and organizations include:

  • Seattle / King County Public Health
  • Ballard Alliance
  • City of Puyallup
  • Seattle Department of Transportation

The virtual session will be October 23, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.  Register here to attend. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will receive 2 AICP credits.
