Remix your street

Given some of the discussion on turning Main Ave in downtown Spokane into a two-way street, this new tool called Streetmix is perfectly timed. Consider it a practive for what you want your built environment, streetscapes, and elements for drivers, bikers, and pedestrians to look like. 

Developed at a hackathon by a group of Code for America fellows - Lou Huang, Ezra Spier, Marcin Wichary, Katie Lewis and Ans Bradford - it's hard to put down. 

 

"One of the groups running the meeting actually cut out individual strips of paper with sections of road and trees and sidewalks and bike lanes," Huang told Atlantic Cities, "and had everyone sit in groups and form their ideal version of 2nd street."
