Fixing Our Broken Streets
In coordination with CTC, Sierra Club hosts a Providence Community Meeting to discuss Complete Streets planning and strategy
The Rhode Island Chapter of the Sierra Club is launching a complete streets campaign to build public support for transportation reform. The grass tops initiative embodied by groups like Transit 2020, NUPTA and now Coalition for Transportation Choices has been wonderfully effective at getting policymakers on the transit reform bus, but the general public still needs to get on board.
Thus, Sierra is using its grassroots expertise to organize community meetings around the State in order to raise public awareness and involvement in the process of improving our streets so that they are more accommodative to all modes of traffic; the end result being the reduction of automobile use and all the environmental, economic, and health benefits that decrease would entail.
Please join Sierra Club and members of the Providence community as this exciting plan goes into motion. Refreshments will be provided. For further information, please contact Abel Collins.
