Keeping Fairfax A People-Powered Community
Streets for People is modeled after the successful Ciclovia weekly Sunday open streets event that started in Bogata, Columbia over 30 years ago. Hundreds of cities and towns around the world and across the US now feature their own versions of car-free weekends.
In the words of City Repair, the vision behind open streets events is “to take back the public realm and create memorable beautiful vibrant places where people want to gather and participate in the community.”
