Our Panel From Left: David Goldfarb, Councilman Squilla, Andrew Stober, Prema Gupta, Beth Miller
Thank you for making our first event last night Streetfilms, Sneckdowns & The Pedestrian a success! During the event we screened 9 short films highlighting our growing movement to reclaim the public space for people and bicycles. Afterward, Jon Geeting gave a great Prezi about Pedestrian Plazas on E. Passyunk, additional areas of focus, and the safety issues along Passyunk that these plazas could help mitigate. You can find that Prezi *here*
Then we opened it up to questions for our panel: Councilman Mark Squilla, Beth Miller from the Community Design Collaborative, Andrew Stober from MOTU, Prema Gupta from University City District and David Goldfarb from East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association. Questions mainly focused on the political and financial challenges to bringing these ideas to life.
