​Marcia Scott discusses "Tactical Urbanism" at the 105th annual International City/County Management conference in Nashville.

​Marcia Scott, IPA policy scientist, made a presentation at the International City/County Management’s (ICMA) 105th annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee, on Oct. 20, 2019. 

Scott presented on “Tactical Urbanism: Transforming Public Spaces Through Low-Cost Temporary Changes” at ICMA’s research symposium for pracademics and students. The session featured academics, practitioners and local government managers who teach (or pracademics) from seven other universities (including Cornell University and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill). 

Scott’s presentation highlighted how pop-up demonstration or “tactical urbanism” projects can transform public spaces into vibrant, activity-oriented destinations and calm traffic. Based on applied research in Delaware, her research team identified eight ”success targets” of a participatory planning framework that can achieve neighborhood pride, safer streets, economic revitalization and creative-placemaking benefits for communities.
