Plans are in the works for Bicycle Fayetteville Days 2015!
Imagine if — even just for one day — the biggest street in your neighborhood was closed to motor vehicle traffic so you could explore it by bike or on foot.
How different would your community start to look to you?
Open streets events — sometimes also called ciclovias — involve temporarily closing selected streets to motor vehicle traffic so residents can walk, bike, run, skate, socialize and play in a car-free environment.
Open streets events take various forms, but they all share these characteristics:
- They involve temporarily closing a segment of public street to motor vehicle traffic.
- They’re free events, open to all.
- Routes range from one to 10 miles or more and often run at least partly through retail districts, where local business owners benefit from the increased retail activity.
- Community organizations, clubs and other groups host booths and attractions along the route, providing food, music, games and crafts.
- Corporate sponsorships, grants and/or public funding are used to cover event costs, which typically involve planning, marketing, traffic controls and equipment rental.
