Reconstruction Ahead: School Streets and Street Reclamation in Ontario

The Reconstruction Ahead report investigates the implementation of Schools Streets in Ontario to reveal the implications for broader street reclamation efforts. Those who led every known School Street in Ontario and other relevant interest groups were interviewed to reveal the barriers faced and potential scaling solutions. My experience as a School Street implementer in Kingston, Ontario, was also captured, ensuring the information was grounded by first-hand experience. 

Reconstruction Ahead documents barriers that hinder School Streets’ establishment, scale, and sustainability; proposes recommendations for municipalities to establish, scale, and sustain School Streets in Ontario; and names long-term implications for contemporary street reclamation efforts.
