The May, 2011 Healthy Communities Forum Topic: Mobility and Transportation – Complete Streets for Healthy Communities
Tuesday, May 31st, 6 pm
Council Chambers, City Hall
1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City

Redwood City Councilmember Barbara Pierce will discuss some of the challenges our cities face related to mobility of pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and drivers and highlight how complete streets can improve the social, economic, environmental health of our cities. Afterward, we’ll discuss solutions and strategize next steps together with Chris Bui, a master interactive facilitator.

Join us for the second Healthy Communities Forum and explore how the various facets of the health of our cities – economic, environmental, and social – intersect. Each Forum is a unique opportunity for decision makers, community leaders, and the general public to listen to visionary speakers share their knowledge related to a specific aspect of a healthy community.

Participants engage in dialogue to connect the vision of a healthy community to their own community, discuss solutions, and together decide on meaningful next steps. Future talks include housing, local economies, public health, and habitat preservation.
