Tactical Urbanism: Short-Term Events for Long-Term Change

On March 9, Greenbelt Alliance hosted a community meeting at the San Jose Rose Garden Library. Attendees included members from the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association, Burbank Community Association, and Antiques Colony, as well as San Jose city staff and other members of the community. The topic of discussion: tactical urbanism events at the West San Carlos Street and South Bascom Avenue Neighborhoods.

Tactical urbanism refers to short-term place-making activities that are designed to generate enthusiasm for long-term urban improvements. In the case of Scott Street and Business Circle, we want to engage community members around these short-term events and to increase engagement around the improvements outlined in the West San Carlos Street and South Bascom urban village plans.
