The Regina Downtown Improvement district is holding a workshop on tactical urbanism.
Tactical urbanism is defined as temporary additions made by city residents to improve the betterment of the community in the long run.
Executive Director, Judith Veresuk said the Copper Kettle boardwalk is a prime example of tactical urbanism.
“A lot of people remember years back Copper Kettle had that boardwalk in front of their business,” she said.
“That boardwalk allowed them to extend their patio and still maintain their sidewalk, that is a great example of tactical urbanism in place and inspiring a long-term change of actually getting out their and moving that curb-line to accommodate that wider sidewalk and allowing them to have a bigger patio,” Veresuk said.
The workshop takes place Thursday and Friday, with Friday’s social networking event open to the public.
