Wright Middle School Neighborhood Solutions

Wright Middle School Neighborhood Solutions

During the Spring of 2017, a class of 5th graders at Wright Middle School learned about urban design as a way of thinking through and problem solving issues in their community. They learned about the history and identity of their neighborhood, explored the neighborhood through an urban design walking tour, and brainstormed solutions to the issues that they saw. 

While many neighborhood improvement ideas were presented, those that were the most popular included strategically placed trash cans and recycle bins to reduce litter, and bike only streets to make it safer for students to get around.
