The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is having a devastating impact on communities across the region, the nation, and the world. As a result, jurisdictions are contending with strategies to respond to the pandemic’s impacts and envisioning long term efforts for street level planning, safety, resiliency, and recovery. Across the country, emerging practices have included repurposing street space for aid distribution, resource delivery, and temporary infrastructure for bus rapid transit (BRT), among many others.
The SCAG Go Human campaign will host a two-part webinar series on meaningful and emerging strategies and practical considerations to creating street programming that are rooted in equity best practices. This Resilient Streets Webinar Series will help agency staff and community partners to determine what kind of program is right for them and offer solutions for implementation.
