MCBC Speaker Series: Getting to Yes – Julie Flynn

Refreshments – 7:00 PM | Lecture, Q+A – 7:45 PM

Efforts to make streets more bike-friendly are often met with resistance from people with concerns about traffic and parking, which can lead to improvements being delayed, watered down, or eliminated completely.

Armed with temporary paint, cones, and planter boxes, cities from San Francisco to Bentonville, Arkansas have found a way to settle fears. Pilot projects allow cities to better understand impacts before plans are finalized. Perhaps more importantly, they enable people to reimagine streets as more than conduits for traffic.

Please join MCBC in welcoming Julie Flynn to Marin to learn about her work transforming streets around the world, one pilot project at a time.
