West Palm Beach, FL is one of six “Beta City” partners that The Street Plans Collaborative is working with as part of the Tactical Urbanist’s Guide to Materials and Design project. Street Plans delivered a workshop designed to expand West Palm Beach’s familiarity and comfort with planning and executing collaborative demonstration, pilot, and interim design projects.
As a result of the workshop, the City of West Palm Beach and Downtown West Palm Beach decided upon a large mural at the intersection of South Tamarind Avenue and Fern Street to beautify the street, slow down cars, and make the intersection safer for bicyclists and pedestrians. Students from Dreyfoos School of the Arts designed the intersection and the City of West Palm Beach implemented the project.
