Buffalo's Complete Streets Summit begins tomorrow evening. The two day event includes a public forum on Thursday evening and a series of policy maker forums on Friday. Howard Zemsky Co-Chair WNY Regional Development Council will deliver the keynote address. Here's that schedule.
The public is invited to attend Thursday evening's forum. It will highlight the importance of implementing our local Complete Streets policies, and draw upon examples of national best practices through a panel of experts. The public forum will be held at Asbury Hall, 314 Delaware Avenue, and will begin at 5:30pm.
On June 1, 2008, Buffalo's Complete Streets ordinance was unanimously passed by the City Council and signed into law by the Mayor. Defined as streets with facilities that are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users along our roadways, Complete Streets include persons with disabilities, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders. Buffalo is embracing a vision to promote health, safety, community, environmental sustainability, and quality of life for all, in every season.Please check Buffalo Complete Streets for additional information.
