NEW FILM: THE GREAT STREET TOOLKIT!


We are proud to announce the release of
The Great Street Toolkit on DVD! This film highlights 12 urban planning and design best practices for downtown shopping streets — from building transparency to retail mix — and shows you why they're important for your downtown. A discussion of historic preservation, design review, and recommendations for further study round out this layperson-friendly film.

With a running time of 23 minutes, Toolkit is designed to serve as a concise and productive conversation-starter with citizens, students, elected officials and others who may not have a grounding in the study of downtown health.

Toolkit was funded in part by a grant from the Urban Design and Preservation Division of the American Planning Association.

RECENT PRESS

In its recent review of
The Great Street Toolkit, the American Planning Association's Planning Magazine said,

"We all know great streets when we see them. But how do planners explain to citizens, elected officials, and planning students what makes a street great? Kirk Westphal suggests showing them... Especially suited for nonplanners, the toolkit serves as a concise primer on creating a lively downtown."
