One of my favorite, and most memorable moments of Eugene Sunday Streets, was watching neighbors set up a table and chairs in the middle of the street and play a card game. It was such a simple but joyous interaction in the sense that the neighbors made the street their own. There was an open invitation to the entire community to sit down at that table and play with them.
I believe public spaces, especially public streets, have the ability to improve the quality of our lives and strengthen our communities. I joined Alta to encourage the creation and use of friendly and accessible streets that inspire a sense of belonging.
