Streets make up more than 80% of public space in cities. What can we do to make them friendlier for pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, transit and as social hubs?  

The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NATCO) is an association of more than 62 major North American cities (including four in Canada: Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax) formed to cooperatively approach transportation issues. They’re looking for input into their upcoming publication, “Streets for Kids Design Guide” to accompany their other street design guides.  

Here’s more information and the survey - share what’s working, what’s not, and how you think we can globally move forward to more kid-friendly streets. Your responses will be shared with planners, designers, engineers, urbanists, advocates and other professionals who help shape our cities. Last day to complete the questionnaire is September 16, 2018.

Find out more about the Streets for Kids and other initiatives on NATCO’s global design initiative website. 

Curious about how child-friendly Calgary is? Read up on it here before or after you participate in the survey.
