About the Event
Come to mActivity to join NHCAT with Charles Brown to discuss the world-wide growth of Ciclovias and how New Haven could institute an Open Streets event where motorized traffic is banned from the route. Charles will give a presentation about Ciclovias and the impact they can have on community health, economic growth, promotion of equity and citizen mobilization for safe streets for all.
