How can we make Market Street a more connected and vibrant place?

The goal of the Prototyping Festival is to unite diverse neighborhoods along Market Street, encouraging these vibrant communities to work with designers, artist and makers to build a more connected, beautiful San Francisco.

A 'throw your own block party' kit would be interesting: steps on how to get permitting, best way to organize neighbors, find the right activities, etc.

That's a great idea, Tom. It's really hard to figure out what permits you need from the city's website. There's all these details about liability insurance, etc. Makes it seem like a daunting endeavor to just have an activity that brings everyone together.

We're thinking about just having it be in people's front yards so that we don't have to deal with street closures, etc.

The 'beg button' :)

The issue with timing pedestrian lights is that it also slow transit down. Is it possible to do a 'green wave' for peds while not making it worse for buses?
