Do you want to transform public spaces into vibrant interactive places? Spearhead projects that prioritize bikers and walkers? Improve our public transportation systems? Promote energy efficient buildings? Revitalize our blighted neighborhoods? Infuse art and creativity into our urban spaces? We all have thoughts and ideas on any of these topics. Let’s collaborate.

This group is meant to bring together urbanists, planners, designers, environmentalists, artists, developers and anyone else interested in infusing our streets, neighborhoods and cities with innovation. The goal is to network, talk, interact, exchange thoughts and ideas, collaborate on projects, and turn fascinating ideas into concrete initiatives.

We will meet once or twice a month, often at an urban space that is open to suggestions by you.
