Name some challenges to tactical urbanism. Would these approaches work where you live?
Community building efforts

Community gardens on municipal property, initiated by the community are good examples. Citizens in our community, Poncha Springs negotiated with the town board to use a vacant parcel for a community garden, with the town picking up insurance as a town park, and the participants paying water costs back to the town. The citizens just doubled the size of the garden, and are considering adding a grow dome for year round growing in the mountain climate. Other residents are preparing a permaculture study of the town to be considered with the town's Land Use Code update. The citizens are asking for urban agriculture (farmers markets, community supported agriculture, etc.) to be allowable use in some of the town zones.
