地点:加利福尼亚州,洛杉矶市丨Location: Los Angles, California
Reclaiming the Right-of-Way is a toolkit that provides city staff and community members with practical guidance to support the development of parklets — places that emerge from the low-cost conversion of small and underutilized residual spaces originally devoted to cars into places for the passive or active recreation of people. The toolkit originated to facilitate parklet projects in Los Angeles and covers precedents in Los Angles, municipal cast studies, design guidance, and creative photo simulations. Despite having a Los Angeles focus, the toolkit and its accompanying best practices are being used across the country by cities interested in creating their own parklet programs.

旧金山预算沙皇游戏San Francisco Budget Czar Game
地点:加利福尼亚州,旧金山市丨Location: San Francisco, California
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority developed the Budget Czar game to get citizen input on the countywide transportation investment priorities through 2040. The multilingual, interactive website enabled citizens to select from a menu of transportation programs, operations, and maintenance funding levels and capital projects within the projected $64.3 billion that would be available during the transportation plan's lifetime. If users surpassed their budget, they were instructed to reduce their spending or find additional revenue. The website solicited input but also helped educate citizens on the complexities of local transportation funding. More than 900 responses were received, a higher level engagement than previous outreach efforts from public meetings and surveys.

地点:俄亥俄州,克里夫兰丨Location: Cleveland, Ohio
肯特州立大学的克利夫兰城市设计合作项目可用于制定临时干预措施,以便在做出重大政治或财政承诺前调查社区公众对新项目或政策的支持度。弹窗城市使市民能够根据实践经验设想未来的发展方向。这一方法提高了机会意识,有利于从发展的角度获得共识。在过去的三年里,临时干预措施已被用于探索诸多公共空间的设计方案,并以极富趣味性的方式突显克利夫兰未得到充分利用的物业。弹窗城市提高了公众参与度,取得了良好的长期发展成效。例如,作为一个综合交通规划项目,底特律-苏必利尔桥梁项目旨在将基础设施改造成可用的公共空间,当时共有8 000多位市民参加了该项目的调查。
Kent State University's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC) develops temporary interventions that gauge community support for new projects and policies before making significant political or financial commitments. Pop Up City enables citizens to envision future development alternatives based on actual experiences. The process raises awareness of opportunities and helps build consensus around a development vision. In the past three years, temporary interventions have explored alternatives for public space design and highlighted some of Cleveland's underutilized properties in an entertaining manner. Pop Up City increases public participation and generates better long-term development outcomes. For example, more than 8,000 citizens participated in the Detroit-Superior bridge project that a comprehensive transportation planning process to convert the infrastructure into usable public space.

地点:加利福尼亚州,圣贝纳迪诺县丨Location: County of San Bernardino, California
The San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) examined the ability of non-motorized users to access its regional transit network. The SANBAG Improvement to Transit Access for Cyclists and Pedestrians Report presents proposed facility improvements for specific corridors leading to Metrolink Commuter Rail stations and sbX Bus Rapid Transit stations. Each station has a description of the recommended improvements for cyclists and pedestrians, explaining where each improvement should be made and a cost estimate for implementing the recommended improvements. The year-long project sought to identify existing access barriers, inform stakeholders of industry best practices, and propose planning-level improvements in and around the selected stations.
