Oaks and Spokes, the BikeRaleigh Program and Raleigh's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission are teaming up with a unique partnership to deliver a Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper (LQC) Project. LQC is a way to perform small scale actions using short-term, low-cost materials to activate and change a neighborhood. It utilizes an open and iterative development process to use creative social interaction, pilot an idea, and get feedback before making permanent change.
Key details of the project:
Where is the project located?
The pilot project Phase 1 was installed on Harrington Street between Davie and Morgan from April 5th through the 7th. Future phases will better link Glenwood South to the Warehouse District in downtown Raleigh. The actual location of the project may vary based on construction projects or other constraints in the downtown but is anticipated to be 3 blocks in length, but has the potential of extending the entire corridor. After analyzing the data from the pilot weekend we will continue looking at implementing more phases along this corridor.
Oaks and Spokes has decided to raise at least $20,000 for the project. Your donation will go toward purchase of materials for the project such as delineation posts, contractor grade paint, planters, traffic tape, adhesives, reflective tape, plants, trees, grasses, bushes, and tools.
After the project needs are met, additional contributions will go toward Oaks and Spokes programming.
Those who donate to the project will be recognized in their contribution to enhancing the community and making Raleigh a better place to go by bike. We are offering 3 sponsorship levels for the CycleTrack project.
All donations are tax deductible.
