Materials from the National Complete Streets Coalition’s sessions at National Walking Summit 2013

Complete Streets partners breakfast
At the National Complete Streets Coalition’s partner breakfast, part of the National Walking Summit last week.

The National Complete Streets Coalition had a whirlwind week last week at the first-ever National Walking Summit in Washington, DC. More than 300 participants came together to discuss ways to support walking through policy, design, advocacy, funding, organizing and engagement in communities large and small. The conference had great energy and enthusiasm for Complete Streets and how this approach supports safe, inviting and convenient places to walk.

With the help of the DowntownDC BID, the Coalition welcomed 15 Partners and Steering Committee members to Washington at its Partners breakfast. After catching up with one another, the Partners heard from Ellen Jones, Director of Infrastructure and Sustainability for the Downtown BID, about how downtown DC will begin to accommodate more pedestrians as travel demand increases.

The Coalition also participated in two sessions at the conference: Walkable Commercial Districts: Making the Economic Case and Design Principles and Completing Our Streets: Policy and Advocacy Tools to Get You Moving.

Presentations from both sessions, as well as handouts designed to help identify new allies and cultivate local elected officials and business leaders as champions from each session, are now available:
