Imagine drivers acting as guests on your street -- now transformed into a dynamic outdoor living room with children playing and neighbours chatting. Dream no longer! Part social history and part community-activist handbook, Street Reclaiming celebrates the potential of our streets to become vibrant and prosperous centres of culture and community once again. International urban planner David Engwicht provides a step-by-step process to psychologically and physically reclaim our streets, starting with a simple 6-week program to reduce traffic by 30-50 per cent (without involving local officials), then introducing psychological reclaiming techniques and, finally, physical reclaiming: converting traffic space into community spaces that will enhance the social fabric of the neighbourhood.
