Street Lights 2016

A Complete Streets approach can help people improve our health, our daily commutes, our local economies, and our communities. How can advocates encourage Complete Streets, and work with engineers and practitioners to get these projects built?

We convened to answer these questions on November 15, 2016 in Sacramento, CA at Street Lights: Illuminating Implementation and Equity in Complete Streets, our first-ever Complete Streets conference. This day-long conference offered a chance for transportation planners and engineers, community, equity, and health advocates, local officials, and Complete Streets practitioners to share ideas, brainstorm solutions, and celebrate the success of the Complete Streets movement nationwide.

Street Lights convened interactive panels and breakout discussions about cutting-edge Complete Streets ideas, practices, and tools. The conference came at an incredibly exciting time, as Congress recently included Complete Streets language in its new federal transportation law and the nation had just recently passed 1,000 Complete Streets policies.
