In many areas, projects of a certain scale or level of innovation are left in limbo: too small, ephemeral, or experimental to be implemented by government agencies and too extensive to be citizen-implemented. What becomes of these projects and how can we shift the paradigm to better support them? How are leaders currently supporting the growing tactical urbanism and placemaking movements? What policy changes can facilitate these movements and what are the barriers to implementing such changes?
