Complete Streets Consortium Series
Smart Growth America’s new technical assistance opportunity—the Complete Streets Consortium Series—was open to all units of local government. Thank you to those communities which applied for the program.
Our re-launched Complete Streets Consortium Series is an opportunity for three communities from the same state to work closely together to implement Complete Streets—streets that are safe and accessible for people of all ages and abilities.
Smart Growth America is committed to ensuring that our workshops are accessible to all communities. After receiving feedback from numerous communities who were ineligible under the application requirements announced earlier this fall, the Complete Streets Consortium Series is now open to any three units or subdivisions of local government, Indian tribe, or regional government.
Applications were due Thursday, February 2, 2017. For more information on the program, see the PDF version of the application.
On April 11, 2017, we announced the recipient consortium for 2017 — three cities in Tennessee. On December 13, 2017, we awarded a second recipient consortium — three communities in the Denver, Colorado metropolitan area.
