MEDIA ADVISORY Broward “Complete Streets” Initiative Hosts Public Workshops Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
Who should Attend: People like you, who travel our streets every day, local leaders, community organizations, city planners and those interested in creating healthy and safe streets in Broward County. These workshops will be led by members of the Urban Health Partnerships and the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization.
What: The Broward “Complete Streets” Initiative will host public workshops throughout the county to generate public feedback on establishing “Complete Streets” community design standards to make our streets safe for all users, including those who walk, use wheelchairs, ride bikes and use public transportation. Broward County residents, employees and employers are encouraged to attend any of the three public workshops during the month of April.

Why: The Broward Regional Health Planning Council was recently awarded a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grant, Transforming Our Community’s Health (TOUCH) Initiative to increase the health and well-being of those who work, live, learn and play in Broward. As a result, Urban Health Partnerships, Smart Growth Partnership and the Broward MPO will be working to create healthy and safe places in Broward County that are supportive of active lifestyles. This is your opportunity to provide input and learn more about how Broward County is joining communities across the country in rethinking road design and balancing rights-of-way for all users: walkers, bicyclists, transit riders and drivers alike.
