NCDC's March Urban Design Forum will focus on tactical urbanism and its impact on how our city looks in the future. Elwyn Gonzalez from the Nashville Metropolitan Planning Department will discuss how the city can use temporary projects and installations to influence final designs. His talk includes:
1. Best practices and examples of tactical urbanism strategies in other communities throughout the U.S.
2. Metro’s strategy at creating a permitting process and how temporary facilities could lead to eventual permanent designs
3. Past and present pilot projects that can be expanded throughout Nashville-Davidson County
We will be using a pop-up event space, so bring your own chair! We will have a few chairs available for those who are unable to bring their own.
