An enthusiastic crowd enjoyed the hospitality of the Hotel Parq Central last Thursday, March 3rd to discuss this opportunity. City Councilor Isaac Benton set the positive tone for the meeting in discussing the City’s adopted Complete Streets Ordinance, and the resolution that adopted most of Jeff Speck’s Downtown Walkability Recommendations. The presentation included the following videos that are fantastic models for our own neighborhood and city. We hope you will invest about 43 minutes watching them if you couldn’t attend.
- Jeff Speck on the Walkable City and its economic, health, and sustainability advantage (17 minutes)
- The Complete Streets effort in New York City and its achievements (11 minutes)
- The Complete Streets effort in Charlotte NC and its impact on real estate development and values (4 minutes)
- Lancaster, CA’s Main Street renovation and its incredible economic and community success (4 minutes)
