Bike-sharing, is a service in which bikes are made available for shared use to individuals
who do not own them. Bicycle sharing systems can be divided into two general
categories: “Community Programs" organized mostly by local community groups or non-…
We gathered last night at the Pickle Factory to go over the final release of the charrette book, and talk/ brainstorm about near-term projects that came out of the charrette that we're tackling as a neighborhood, and of course, to eat, drink an be merry!…Continue

How cool is this? It's an art installation in the city of Agueda, Portugal and you can read more about it here.
Maybe this is something we can try on a smaller scale for Granary Row? It could work well between the two food containers over…Continue
Dekalb Market in Brooklyn, NY has been an example we've used to explain how Granary Row might work logistically (fire code, building code, ADA, permitting, etc.) and I have been in touch with the firm who operated Dekalb to see if we could receive guidance in our quest to get Granary Row permitted. As a note, the City has been so incredibly supportive with this project and…Continue
After our last coffee klatch to decide on a mission statement and design for Granary Row, we came up with a brochure (above).
This is a great documentary on an urban revitalization project in the Netherlands. Something we're facing here in the Granary. There are some really incredible ideas from how to revitalize an under-utilized area through great design, collaboration, creating diversity, using existing…Continue

Some think the Granary is a food desert, but we know that's not true! M. Flores and the other surrounding bodegas offer some great produce, groceries and tamales on Saturdays.

This is the inside of the Hyde Building, just north of the Pickle Factory. Amazing, isn't it? At the charrette we talked about how to get more vacant buildings occupied in an efficient, cost-effective, safe way.
Wouldn't you love to live or work in the space when it's finished? Some good people are already working on making that happen!
Are there any…Continue

I'll be out of town, but if someone decides to go, take notes! and report…

Thank you to the Barretts for hosting again at the Utah Pickle Factory, Doug Woodruff for bringing the print-outs, and to all who…Continue

I really liked the plan for the Festival Street that we discussed last night and what Christian said about making the GD the place where the local economy lives!
It would be great to see a retail space for local makers and artists to feature and sell their work. This combined with programmed events could draw a lot of people to the area. One…Continue
Just wanted to forward this blog post on to ya'll.
I don't remember if this was the one that James came across, but Derek Sivers posted it on Facebook today and it reminded me how cool these are. The "I wish this was" stickers in action:
I really think it would be a cool idea to get some people to pitch in on a few boxes of these.
