Tulsa, Oklahoma Jane Jacobs Walk: Public Spaces Tour

  • Topeca Coffee

It's Planning Month! Join the City of Tulsa Planning Department and Tulsa Foundation for Architecture as we discover downtown through the eyes of Jane Jacobs, an urban activist from the 1960s who took a critical look about how cities function, evolve, and fail in her book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. We will look at the buildings and public spaces that make downtown Tulsa and explore the impact history, preservation, transportation, and urban renewal has had. We will discuss what makes these places successful or not? What changes could be made to make spaces more engaging? We each have our own ideas of what places are vibrant, appealing places; we return frequently to these places!

Salt Lake City, Utah: Activating Streetscapes

  • 200 South Main Street East Salt Lake City, UT, 84101 United States

We all have a subconscious understanding of the quality of places from our experience, and know exactly what places are vibrant, engaging places. They are the places we want to return to again and again. But what makes some places successful and others not? An active street life is won or lost in just a few design details, which we will explore as we compare-and-contrast in downtown Salt Lake City. Join us as we discuss how urban designers shape the design of buildings and the public realm to engage people, build value, and make a place memorable.

Join us on a walking conversation with Seven Canyons Trust and the Jordan River Commission as we explore, reconnect, and reimagine our hidden waterways at the nearby Three Creeks convergence. 

We will walk the route where Red Butte, Emigration, and Parley's creeks flow underneath our urban infrastructure and into the convergence where they reach the confluence of the Jordan River. Here we will explore and reimagine the future of the site and the opportunities for it to become Three Creeks Park. 

This event is part of a national week of action run by the US Department of Arts and Culture(USDAC). The USDAC is the nation's newest people-powered department, founded on the truth that art and culture are our most powerful and under-tapped resources for social change. Radically inclusive, useful and sustainable, and vibrantly playful, the USDAC aims to spark a grassroots, creative change movement, engaging millions in performing and creating a world rooted in empathy, equity, and social imagination.

    Sacramento, California: East Sacramento's 38th Street

    East Sacramento was once served by PG&E streetcars that ran down J Street, turning south at 46th Street. By the time this photo was taken circa 1945 they turned around and returned from this point, but until the mid-1930s they ran south through East Lawn Cemetery, zig-zagged past the Coloma School in Elmhurst and stopped at the rear entrance to the California state fairgrounds. Residents of 38th Street could easily reach the fairgrounds or downtown Sacramento on the #3 streetcar until it stopped running in 1946.

Residents of 38th Street could easily reach the fairgrounds or downtown Sacramento on the #3 streetcar until it stopped running in 1946.

    This tour explores a portion of East Sacramento, one of Sacramento’s earliest streetcar suburbs, notable for its architectural beauty and landscape design. The stories of some of the original inhabitants of this East Sacramento tract will be shared, and the architectural styles of the neighborhood discussed. Tour led by Preservation Sacramento’s East Sacramento Subcommittee.

    Jane Jacobs Walk and Jane Jacobs Roll are part of a continent-wide series of walks and bike rides based on the principles of Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Written in an era when American cities promoted the suburb and the automobile, turning their backs on downtowns and older neighborhoods, her work changed the way American planners thought about cities. It is widely read today by modern urban planners, promoting sidewalks, parks, mixed use, residential density, local economies and walkability. 

    Part history tour, part urban planning discussion, Sacramento will host five Jane Jacobs Walks and one “Roll” bike ride. These tours explore how Sacramento’s city neighborhoods function for pedestrians and cyclists, residents and businesses, public transit and cars (or, in some cases, not.) All tours are free and open to the public.

    Cambridge, MA: Considering Change Afoot in Kendall Square

    • Kendall Square

    This year’s walk will take a look at upcoming development in part of the Kendall Square neighborhood in east Cambridge, which is bounded by the Charles River, MIT, a large land parcel where the federal government in 1964 erected the Volpe Building for its NASA space program, and more recent tech industry and hotels. Conceived when Kendall Square was a forlorn urban renewal site, the Volpe Building is now obsolete and may be demolished to make way for a new federal transportation building exempt from local regulations. MIT has just released plans for developing its campus alongside and to the south of the square. Residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, comprised of small businesses and residential streets, want a say in the area’s redevelopment.

    Lunch to follow at the Meadhall restaurant, at the corner of Broadway and Ames Street, where those who wish may continue conversation and purchase lunch.
    To help us consider and converse about issues raised by these projects, we will hear from the City of Cambridge’s recently retired director of urban design Roger Boothe, Charles Sullivan from the Cambridge Historical Commission, and representatives from MIT and the East Cambridge Planning Team, a citizens’ group.

    Date: Saturday, May 9, 2015

    Time(s): 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

    Event Start/End:

    Opened in 1853, Pinewood-Elmwood is a local historic landmark and home to a veritable who’s who of Charlotte families, including many names you may recognize: Belk and Bearden, Myers and Morehead, Latta and Dowd. It is also beautiful – more than 70 acres of rolling green space, birdsong and majestic trees in the heart of Center City. You’ll learn about some of the cemetery’s oldest inhabitants, the wars and plagues that Charlotte’s citizens suffered, and how segregation, civil rights and integration played out in the cemetery between the 1930s and 1960s.
