Please join the CA State Network and Bay Area Health in Transportation Collaborative for Complete Streets: Policy Success and Challenges in the Bay Area on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 | 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. PST.
Rates of walking and bicycling are rising steadily in California, even as supportive funding continues to hover at around 1 percent of transportation dollars. Advocates, funders, researchers, and local and regional agencies are looking for innovative opportunities to finance Complete Street improvements outside of the traditional state grant programs.
Hear about how advocates in the Bay Area worked with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission to institutionalize Complete Streets policies in nearly every county in the region in a few short months. How effective are these policies and are they moving toward implementation of safer streets? Learn what research is revealing.
Swati Pande, Research Associate, UC Berkeley Safe Transportation Research & Education Center (SafeTREC), will present on the findings of a project she conducted with the Safe Routes to School National Partnership on evaluating Active Transportation funding and Complete Streets policies in the Bay Area.
Dave Campbell, Advocacy Director, Bike East Bay, will discuss accomplishments and challenges with Complete Streets.
