Linking Valley Stream- Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety
6:00 PM18:00

Linking Valley Stream- Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety

Gathering of Valley Stream leaders, law enforcement, traffic safety groups, and community partners strategizing short- and long-term projects to create safer streets, sidewalks and pathways for pedestrians and cyclists, and to address critical crash spots for the safety of all road users.

We will look towards pedestrian and bicycle education programs in the community including school, senior centers, community centers and in partnership with businesses, as well as increasing awareness of driver and passenger education throught PSA's and outreach. Problematic intersections will be discussed for short-term fixes to increase visibility, with law enforcement and planners at the table.

We hope this outreach will increase support for a comprehensive traffic study to help grant seeking for more long-term Complete Street designs.
