Third times the charm!
Surprisingly, we made it to our third update! Thanks to all of you, Plan Together keeps growing even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Open and interactive discussion/planning has clearly struck a chord. I was even a guest on a Strong Towns podcast (More on that below).
As more cities around the world are looking to alter their landscapes to enable social distancing and walking/biking, I think this is a tremendous opportunity to encourage the use of Plan Together to make sure these changes serve the community and make our public spaces better. Please continue to spread the word and keep contributing your ideas and thoughts!
