The Safe Streets Summit is South Florida’s premier Complete Streets education event, and is aimed at giving people the training and skills needed to implement Complete Streets in their communities. Transportation planners, elected officials, Complete Streets advocates, and community members all gathered for the 4th Annual Safe Streets Summit to elevate their efforts on how to design safe transportation facilities for all modes of transportation including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists of all ages and abilities. Starting with 2017’s Summit, this conference became a collaborative effort between the Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organizations, stressing the connectedness of Florida’s three most populated counties.
Local Complete Streets individual and community county champions from each county were honored with the Safe Streets Award. This award affords an opportunity to highlight jurisdictions that have led by example in creating safer streets for all users. We are proud to announce that Broward Regional Health Planning Council (BRHPC) was a recipient of the 2017 Safe Streets Award for their leadership role in Broward County’s Complete Streets project. Through intensive partnership, funding, and leadership BRHPC assured that the Broward Complete Streets Guidelines had the needed support for creation and adoption in July 2012. The agency continues to convene dozens of non-traditional Complete Streets partners who play a vital role in the equitable and sustainable implementation of Complete Streets throughout Broward. BRHPC has established five Healthy Community Zones and provided technical assistance to foster Complete Streets in areas of great need such as, Broward County Municipal Services District, Dania Beach, Hallandale Beach, Sistrunk Corridor, and Lauderdale Lakes.
