The pandemic forced cities and towns to get creative. People wanted to gather safely, and needed new space to do that outside.

Communities closed down whole streets for bikers and walkers, and restaurants turned curbside parking spaces into tiny garden patios.

A new poll from the MassINC polling group finds that many of those workarounds actually worked, and people want them to stay.

This segment aired on June 10, 2021.
