How National Best Practices Can Influence the Buffalo Streetscape
Buffalo's Complete Street Summit is happening on Thursday, April 19 at Asbury Hall and you are invited!
Free and open to the public, the summit is designed to recognize that transportation is an urgent issue that impacts the prosperity, healthy and livability of the entire Greater Buffalo region.
The Complete Streets Summit is a two-day symposium highlighting the role of Complete Streets in promoting sustainability and economic development in the city of Buffalo and its surrounding regions. The implementation of Complete Streets policies ensure that communities will continue to evolve and develop in sustainable ways and create opportunities for all transportation modes--by car, bike, transit, or our own two feet.
A thriving transportation system is also a key source of jobs and income in a community. This public forum will highlight the importance of implementing our local Complete Streets policies, and will draw on examples of national best practices through a panel of experts.
