Tactical Urbanism Lands in Raleigh

Emily Badger reports on surreptitious wayfinding signage that has been appearing mysteriously under the cover of darkness in Raleigh.

Following up on a story addressing more conventional wayfinding techniques that ran last week, Badger highlights the efforts of a group called Walk Raleigh to give helpful guidance and encouragement to those exploring the city on foot.

According to Badger, "In mid-January, a group calling themselves Walk Raleigh posted 27 such signs at three intersections around the city, and we hear (by reading their Facebook page), that the stunt has actually caught the eye of city officials who may look to make the signs permanent."

Badger includes images of some other favorite tactical urbanism projects for inspiration.
