In this workshop we’ll tackle the big questions and provide some great solutions when it comes to narrow sidewalks, serving alcohol, fencing and dining borders, using parking spaces, providing adequate pedestrian access, seasonality, as well as how to deal with highways that cruise through your downtown.

You’ll see dozens of photographic examples and great ideas you can implement to help bring your downtown to life, making it a fantastic destination for both locals and visitors alike.

We’ll share lots of photographic examples and the results of producing themed, multi-week long celebrations that you orchestrate, but others actually implement for you!
