Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution

By: Janette Sadik-Khan and Seth Solomonow

Meeting Date: November 16, 2022 6:30 PM

“Streetfight” is the inside story of how New York changed many of its streets, adding bike lanes, launching bike sharing and bus rapid transit and expanding pedestrian infrastructure, including 60 pedestrian plazas.

The “big ideas” for Urban Atlanta:

  • Urban Atlanta should use existing streets and other rights of way in new ways.
  • We should reorient our transportation departments toward all forms of mobility and not just motor vehicles.
  • We should make experiments part of our transportation planning process.
  • We should go big on bike infrastructure.
  • We should find or create an organization that can keep Urban Atlanta focused on other uses of streets.
