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 is proposed on West Street, linking Glenwood South to the Warehouse District in downtown Raleigh. An additional section may be added along Tucker or North St. The actual location of the project may vary based on construction projects or other constraints in the downtown but is anticipated to be 4-5 blocks in length. We are currently expecting to launch the project in Spring 2018.
How will funds be used?
Oaks and Spokes has estimated the cost of the materials for the project at $20,000. 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.
