34 | Streets Are For Everything with Kay Cheng

November 5, 2021

Show notes

Early in the pandemic, public officials around the world seized streets from cars to create urgently needed outdoor space for recreation. Cities such as Paris, Milan, and Madrid led the way toward what some hoped would be a “15-minute city” lived locally on foot or by bicycle. But actually implementing this aspiration proved complicated — after all, we can’t all live in the center of Paris. How are cities pursuing this vision grappling with issues of equity and financing? And what does the street of the future look like beyond plywood street furniture and hastily-painted bicycle lanes? We’re joined by Kay Cheng, Spin’s Head of Streets and Equity Team and a former planner in San Francisco and New York, to discuss the micromobility company’s investments in placemaking and how it’s partnering with cities to reimagine the public realm.
