Open Streets: How to Hangout Again

August 12, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us for this exciting webinar!

Communities around the country have closed streets to vehicular traffic to create space for outdoor dining and other socially distanced interactions. On Wednesday, August 12th from 1 to 2 pm, GrowSmart Maine will host a webinar discussion on these COVID-19 open streets strategies with Mike Lydon, Principal at Street Plans, and creator of The Open Streets Project, and David Gogel, Executive Director of Rockland Main Street. Rockland was the first Maine city to close a section of its downtown to assist businesses. The discussion will focus on the long-term viability of pandemic open streets projects, equity and access concerns, and expanding open streets projects beyond mobility.
