AARP volunteers will be out evaluating the safety of streets and sidewalks this month in communities across the state.
The effort is part of the Complete Streets initiative, which aims to make streets accessible and safe for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and people with disabilities. AARP has pushed for complete streets policy and legislation since 2009. While the state is considered to have one of the strongest such policies in the nation, it also ranked third most dangerous in the nation in a report on pedestrian safety from the nonprofit Transportation for America.
To get involved, email Jason Tudor, AARP associate state director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. To download the Street and Sidewalk Survey, go to createthegood.org and click on "how-to guides." … Back to Article
