Streets are the largest public space in any town or city and have great community-building potential. Yet all too often they are primarily designed and managed solely for a car’s experience on the asphalt. PPS helps communities develop more holistic visions for downtown revitalization, using workshops and observations to brainstorm a more lively mix of stores and services, rationalize traffic patterns and intersections, create streetscapes that support local economic development and create a series of linked destinations. PPS’s downtown programs reinvest neighborhoods in their downtowns, and help create streets that knit neighborhoods together, and allow for flexibility in programming and activities that enhance the character and identity of area downtown, and create a more balanced, and beautiful street for all users.
