Our Friday update here at kickstART farmington highlights some great articles we’ve read this week dealing with art, creative placemaking, and building great communities. You’re sure to find some inspiration to make your life and our community even better!
1. Protected Bike Lanes and Increased Cycling: So protected bike lanes do seem to serve the double purpose of improving rider safety while also inspiring people to ride in the first place.
3. On the Virtue of the Neighborhood Bar: Bars are these great places in neighborhoods that serve as social gathering spaces in a similar way that one would expect from a park.
4. On Cities of Love: Being in a city where every step is memorable helps you retrace those steps. Having that satisfying sense of enclosure actually makes it possible to visibly scan the right of way. If we had been in and out of cars for that hour, it’d’ve been much harder to retrace all the steps.
