key – was that things could be put back to the way they were before if it didn’t work out

move quickly with paint and temporary materials.. rather than waiting for planning et al.. this allows you to experience it rather than theorize it

also brought quick cycling approach to cycling program.. in 6 yrs – turned cycling into a real transportation option

paing can hasten change

reimagine your streets..  hidden in plain site.

Her mantra:

Do bold experiments that are cheap to try out.
