A free workshop for those interested in exploring strategies for creating transportation systems that develop safer and healthier communities is from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. June 28 in Richland.
The state Legislature passed Washington’s Complete Streets Act with the goal of encouraging street designs to safely meet the needs of all users and protect and preserve a community’s environment and character. Urban main streets should be designed to provide safe access to all users, including bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and public transportation users.
Lunch is included. Seating is limited.
The session is intended for planners, engineers, developers, elected officials, community leaders and public health officials. The meeting will be at the Ben Franklin Transit Administration Building, 1000 Columbia Park Trail in Kennewick.
