SDLA Fellow Featured in Voice of San Diego

Current SDLA Fellow Monique Lopez is featured today in an article in the Voice of San Diego. The story covers her work using tactical urbanism to help community members build a community park in the Logan Heights neighborhood of San Diego.

From the text of the article: 

“At the end of the day, that’s just a plan,” Lopez said. “People are constantly being asked to give their input about parks or not having sidewalks. They’re tired of talking about it. They want to see something.”

This is right out of the so-called “tactical urbanism” playbook, which calls for improving neighborhoods by finding ways to make immediate, incremental improvements.
