Walk audits are a great tool in creating communities where residents can participate in making their vision of healthy, safe, walkable streets real.

In a walk audit, community members go for a walk together, noting what makes their streets feel comfortable for walking and what’s missing. But what to do with this information? In this webinar, we'll hear from community partners in Oregon & Washington who have completed walk audits, and explore next steps for turning their vision into reality. Join us on November 15 at 10am PT/1pm ET.

Every two years, Complete Streets Awards are awarded by the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) to cities and counties who work to make streets safe for people who bike, walk, drive, and use transit. This grant program was established (but unfunded) by state legislation in 2011. Then in 2015, the Washington State Legislature allocated $105 million over 16 years through the Washington State Transportation Package to support the grant program.

Youth Pass – typically a free or heavily subsidized transit pass for high school students – is a smart extension of any city's successful Safe Routes to School work, which focuses traffic safety education on elementary students. For high school students, Youth Pass is the logical next step to helping reduce congestion and reliance on vehicles, provides independent travel options, and builds future transit riders.

The 2017-2021 Strategic Plan for Eugene-Springfield SRTS Program was released in December 2017, and we are excited to share what’s in store! The Eugene-Springfield SRTS program is a coordinated regional approach to serving the three largest school districts in the metro area: Bethel, Eugene 4J & Springfield Public Schools. The Strategic Plan outlines priorities for the next four years, and gives an idea of what we might expect to see in all three districts.

Youth and older adults have similar needs when it comes to navigating our streets on foot. Whether a second grader is walking to school, their grandfather is walking to the corner store with their shopping trolley, or their aunt is walking to the park to socialize – we need accessible destinations, continuous paths, and safe crossings.

But what does an inter-generational safe street look like? Here’s your chance to show us.
