Sign-up for April 28th webinar: Complete Streets Implementation and Design

The National Complete Streets Coalition is offering a free webinar on April 28th focused on helping transportation planners and practitioners implement complete streets policies. With five jurisdictions/agencies in Lee County having adopted complete streets policies but only in the beginning stages of implementation, this timely webinar should be of great interest to staff, committee members, consultants, and advocates countywide. Register NOW.

Complete streets implementation is one of BikeWalkLee's key priorities for local, regional and state governments and agencies over the next two years, 2016-17.  Our vision is that by the end of 2017, the promise of complete streets is actually delivered and visible on the ground, and achieving the intended results of improved access, connectivity, safety, and inspiring more people of all age, income groups, and fitness levels to walk, bike, and take transit. Complete streets is an integral part of achieving the community's larger goals of quality of life, economic vibrancy, and a sustainable future.(See BWL related blog)
