Speaking of Complete Streets in Indiana, have you reviewed Best Practices in Engaging Public Health in Complete Streets Initiatives , a recently released report that also features Indiana partners?

The Complete Streets Act of 2019 has been introduced in Congress ! The bill would require states to set aside money for Complete Streets projects, create a statewide program to award the money (and provide technical support), and adopt design standards that support safer, complete streets.

Representative And Carson is a cosponsor, which is important since Indiana’s Seventh District ranks as the 68 th most dangerous congressional district for people walking. Learn more and take action here .
