_bcWORKSHOP says
Calling everyone who lives, works, and plays in downtown Dallas! Join buildingcommunityWORKSHOP and Downtown Dallas, Inc. for a special Community Audited Public Space (CAPS) exercise, one final CAPS events to finish up some of the priority blocks we haven't gotten to yet. Use your expert knowledge and skills to gather vital information on the quality of sidewalks and streetscapes of some of downtowns most complex public spaces to help inform planning efforts downtown. Public knowledge is indispensable in understanding the experience of place within the city. CAPS will reinforce the community led advocacy already taking place downtown and help develop tools and strategies for documenting and addressing issues in downtown's public spaces and sidewalks.

Participants will run through a CAPS training and then be broken into small groups to complete the audit. Each group will audit several blocks, gathering opinions and data on the sidewalks and streetscapes of area. Auditors will record the physical condition of downtown's public realm focusing on the sidewalks, their width, materiality, amenities and interaction with the street.

This initiative is supported in by Downtown Dallas Inc. (DDI) and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts visit www.arts.gov. To find out more about Downtown Dallas Inc, visit http://www.downtowndallas.com/.
