20 Avenue Street Lab Party

The 20 Avenue N Street Lab Party was a first for Calgary – a public engagement trial using temporary materials to transform a street into a possible complete street configuration. This document describes the steps and tools that were developed to host the 20 Avenue N ‘Street Lab Party’. This project was initiated and completed in 2016. The City of Calgary hosted a Street Lab on August 20, 2016. The 20 Avenue N street lab party involved piloting street enhancements using tactical urbanism principles: inexpensive, quick, and temporary. The opportunity was intended to allow residents to participate in the planning and execution of the improvements to determine whether the benefits and drawbacks can be more fully assessed through experiences and observed data sets as compared with more traditional engagement approaches. This project was nominated for the TAC Sustainable Urban Transportation Award.
