Walker Consultants presents Curbs, Streets and Parking for Reopening, a guide for communities to use these spaces to aid in pandemic response.
As cities and states begin to lift stay-at-home orders related to COVID-19, there will be a phased reopening of business and other institutions. Physical distancing will continue to remain especially important. As restaurants and retail begin to reopen, new measures will need to be taken to ensure customers, visitors, and employees can maintain adequate physical distancing.
This guide highlights ways for cities and communities to re-purpose their curbs, streets and parking to create more space for people. To ensure these efforts adequately consider the needs of business, customers, and residents—and are community appropriate and equitable—careful and considerate planning of public right-of-way will be essential.
