Sam Goater of PPS presented this visualization to Fort Worth residents interested in seeing options for Hemphill, and by all reports it went over really well:

I applied PPS’s Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper philosophy to the development of this visualization. In practice that meant that when Sam called from the meeting to say a local business owner was curious how a nearby block would look as a shared space with decorative brick, I was able build and upload the new features within hours.

A great experience, and my thanks go out to the residents of Fort Worth and to Sam, Gary Toth, and the rest of the team at Project for Public Spaces!
