Safe Streets For All Ages and Abilities

When streets are designed to serve the interests of only motorists, we rob the city of wealth, better health, choice and environmental outcomes.

When streets are safer for our children and the aged, they are safer for everyone, including motorists driving to work or returning home to their families and friends.

We need to build a city for people by sharing and redesigning streets.

  • Installed 2 new pedestrian crossing lights
