[H+T--Friends] 2019 Safe Streets Summit: Miami, Feb 25-26
by Henderson, David (TPO)
Please join us for the 6th Annual Safe Streets Summit! The Summit is a collaborative effort between the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization as well as the Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency to provide a local yet regionally connected approach to prioritizing and implementing Complete Streets throughout Southeast Florida. This is the first year it will be hosted in Miami-Dade County!
The Safe Streets Summit brings together national speakers, public officials, technical staff, and community partners to elevate our efforts on how to design and implement safe and equitable transportation facilities for all modes of transportation. This year the Summit will be held at the Intercontinental Miami hotel.
The theme for 2019 is "Safe Streets, Smart Streets," bringing a focus on the implementation of innovative transportation efforts that address challenges of the future. This year's Summit will seek to inspire decision makers and agencies to implement multimodal transportation solutions that expand travel options through first/last mile connections to transit and will emphasize the importance of actively incorporating equity and inclusion throughout all efforts. The Summit will highlight successful efforts nationally and across the region that offer practical and replicable strategies to address safety, health, economic development, and local transportation challenges.
We are proud to have the 17th United States Secretary of Transportation, Anthony Foxx, as our Keynote Speaker. Our Emcee will be Emiko Atherton, the Director of the National Complete Streets Coalition. Registration and other summit details are available at: https://www.safestreetssummit.org/.
