Community members interested in learning more about innovations and ideas for transforming streets into public places are invited to attend a free Streets Reconsidered(re:Streets) workshop from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Old Main
Chapel and Heritage Center Museum on the University of Colorado (CU) Boulder campus. The workshop is sponsored by the City of Boulder, in partnership with CU. It is funded by the re:Streets grant program and the National Endowment For the Arts.

The three-hour re:Streets - Designing Streets for Living workshop will provide an overview of street design strategies for expanding the public uses of streets and designing streets to support human development. The workshop will provide community members, elected officials and city staff with ideas and information for creating a network of street types unique to Boulder, based on the specific needs of local residents and the social, cultural and environmental character of the community. It will also include a presentation of innovative street designs, best practices and a facilitated discussion on approaches to consider for repurposing Boulder’s streets. The workshop will continue these conversations and conclude with a reception at the Heritage Center Museum.

Those interested in attending the workshop are requested to confirm their attendance by contacting Marni Ratzel, City of Boulder bicycle and pedestrian transportation planner, at 303-441-3266 or ratzelm@bouldercolorado.gov.
