Twice in the last two years, we’ve written about protected bike lane projects that began with temporary demos, then used online crowdfunding campaigns to rally public support and raise a little bit of the cash needed to plan or build the project.
Next month, the civic crowdfunding platform behind both of those efforts is hosting a webinar about how other cities and organizations can follow suit.
