Developer: John James O'Brien

Project name: Oaklands Rise Woonerf

Project url (web location):

Project description:
A citizen's group is responding to the inevitable increase in local density by inviting community to hold a set of contiguous, sidewalk-free streets as a wide surface, people first shared space to empower resilient neighbourhoods, healthier living and connections.

Counter-intuitive in North Amercia's car-centric culture, this adaptation of the Dutch woonerf is proposed as a pilot.

Elements include reduction of risk of harm through multi-use design of the set of residential streets; expansion of connectedness among urban neighbourhoods; implementation of plantings, pollinators to augment the Suzuki Foundation's Butterflyway Project; introduction of street furnishings to strengthen multi-generational inclusion and street art for placemaking.
