Street Safety, Active Transportation, and Public Health: A Panel Discussion

Street safety is an ever-present goal talked about in planning, engineering, and public health circles. Yet even as many Colorado communities have adopted Vision Zero initiatives with the goal to improve transportation safety, traffic fatalities and injuries have continued to rise. Bicyclists, pedestrians, and other active transportation users bear a disproportionate share of these fatalities as the most vulnerable users of the transportation system. How can we as professionals plan, design, and advocate for safer active transportation options and improve the overall health and sustainability of our neighborhoods?

Join us on Tuesday, November 12 at 5:30-7:30 PM for a panel discussion, featuring speakers from the planning, engineering, and public health sectors as they discuss new and innovative approaches to street safety and active transportation planning. This event is FREE and open to the public, but we request that you RSVP here!

  • Wes Marshall, Civil Engineering Professor, University of Colorado Denver
  • Kayla Gilbert, Active Living Program Coordinator, Department of Public Health and the Environment, City and County of Denver
