Streets are the passageways that connect us to all our destinations, but they shouldn’t be just for cars, especially in the city. They also provide a path on which to walk or bike whether it be in a lane, on a sidewalk, or on a crosswalk. In essence they should be for people, no matter what the mode of transport.

Website has a fantastic interactive graphic that shows a typical city street transformed into a truly “Livable Street.”

Not only do they show in their graphic an image of a redesigned street, but they identify all the elements that make it beautiful, livable, and fun!

There are so many opportunities in Providence for livable streets. You’ll notice that is having a redesign contest. If you are artistically inclined, why not pick a street in Providence to redesign and submit? Send us a copy, and we’ll post it here, too!

    I’m not sure if even Photoshop can save Atwells and Dean, but I think I might try.
