Embarking on ‘Slow Streets’ during COVID-19, California Department of Public Health Webinar 5/29/2020

Have you ever wondered how to implement “slow streets” in your community? Many communities do not have the space for residents to move around while implementing social distancing. Sidewalks, if there are any at all, are not big enough for staying active while social distancing. “Slow streets” provides an opportunity to move around safely, and this webinar will help you learn the key steps to getting started. Molly Wagner and Alicia Brown from Walk Sacramento share how to get involved with starting “slow streets” and answering any questions you may have. (Recording, Slides)
