East F&G

The First 16 Feet is where the life of Main Streets start and end. People experience Main Street at a human scale, which can be measured in a three-dimensional First 16 Feet: 16 feet out from a building fa├žade and 16 feet from the ground up. It is the most important determinant of safe and active street life, and the most overlooked. This session will help you focus on the area where shared human experiences are most felt and learn small interventions to unlock the energy of the First 16 Feet in your district.
