Alley projects are hot topics in many cities and for good reason. They can create open space, manage runoff, link bike and pedestrian routes and build community. But the transformation of neglected and unsafe alleys into urban green networks embraced by the community can be a tough sell. This presentation will discuss the challenges, rewards and lessons learned through engaging diverse communities in three green alley projects.
