"Reclaiming Public Space" - Tuesday, November 8th, 2005, Innis Town Hall, 7 pm, free
Come listen to a discussion led by Mark Lakeman, a leader of the City Repair Club of Portland on how to reclaim public space. This organization has mobilized communities to harness their creative power to improve their neighbourhoods, to allow people to take priority over cars and managed to redefine a working relationship with City Hall.
