Against a growing national reassessment of urban highways’ damaging legacies and Federal funding in the Infrastructure Bill to reconnect communities separated by highway projects, CNU’s On The Park Park Bench looked at Albany, NY, where a new grassroots organization, the Albany Riverfront Collaborative, has kickstarted a community conversation around reimagining the massively overbuilt I-787, which cuts Albany off from the Hudson River and isolates African American neighborhoods from the rest of the city. Members of the ARC discussed how the collaborative was formed from a diverse coalition of concerned citizens, launching in impressive campaign around persuasive renderings and videos. While still in its relative infancy, Albany offers a model for cultivating community support by telling a compelling story about what our cities might look like when designed for humans and not just cars.

This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
