Abstract

The Urban Stage was constructed as a temporary urbanism project to demonstrate environmental, cultural, economic and social sustainability in an urban environment. One block of Avenue J in downtown Lubbock, Texas was constructed and activated between the dates October 30 and November 7, 2014. This paper will focus on the collaboration and decision making processes between the City of Lubbock, Texas Tech University, and the community that enabled this project to take place. The collaborative process between these diverse entities was complex by virtue of the existing organizational structures and bureaucratic inertia. Leadership actions at various levels of organizational structure were required in order to overcome the bureaucratic avoidance of responsibility.
