Come hear DC-based transportation expert Preston Tyree speak on ‘Complete Streets’ and how they increase transportation choices at The Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center (625 C St.) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 31, in the museum auditorium. This event is co-sponsored by Alaska Transportation Priorities Project, Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage, Anchorage Citizens Coalition, Alaska Center for the Environment and the Spenard Complete Streets Coalition (Facebook page).
According to the National Complete Streets Coalition, “Complete streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities must be able to safely move along and across a complete street.”
Preston has more than 20 years of experience working on transportation issues. Currently he is the Director of Education for the League of American Bicyclists, the organization that designated Sitka a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community in 2008 and Anchorage a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community in 2009.
Come join us to hear Preston’s ideas on how to apply Complete Streets in Anchorage!
