The Open Streets project aims to share information about streets that are closed to traffic and open to residents for recreation. They also hope to increase the number, size and frequency of open street initiatives throughout North America.
What is an open street?
The creators use the term «open streets» to refer to the closure of a street to motorized traffic so that residents can use the space to enjoy activities, games or sports.
The promoters have created a guide on their website to provide advocates and anyone wishing to promote such an event with all that is necessary to carry out their plans.
