Livable Streets Workshops

In January 2018 the Newburyport City Council adopted a Complete Streets Policy that commits the City to designing and managing its streets to accommodate all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles and riders, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Newburyport Livable Streets was formed around the same time with the goal of making it “easier for people to bike and walk throughout Newburyport by providing a network of streets, sidewalks and trails that are accessible and comfortable to everyone regardless of age, ability, or mode of travel.”

But what do we mean when we talk about “livable” streets? What makes a street “complete”? We’re planning a session in the fall of 2020 to explain these concepts and to illustrate them with example locations in Newburyport and other communities. If there’s enough interest, we’ll follow up the workshop with a visit to a local site to apply these ideas in a real-life setting. We’re working on specifics, so watch for dates and locations in this space!
