2021 and 2022 Active Streets Programs

The 2021 Active Streets Program transformed into a community-led initiative in response to the high support of continuing the program after the COVID-19 pandemic. Four community-based organizations were selected to conduct their own outreach and programming. Additional funding was provided to parner with Artists Working in Education to integrate art into the Active Streets locations.

While not an official two-year program at the time, all four community-based organizations chose to extend their participation into 2022. Two of the four Active Streets locations received semi-permanent or permanent traffic calming infrastructure. Below are the four selected community-based organizations and their Active Streets for the 2021 and 2022 programs:

Phases 2 and 3

Each Active Street was evaluated for a potential Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the program. Phase 2 consisted of selecting a smaller portion of the Active Street and installing semi-permanent infrastructure, such as rubber speed humps, speed tables, and other easily installed devices which may be reconfigured throughout Phase 2 based on community feedback. Depending on feedback and performance, Phase 2 may last for several years. Phase 3 involved constructing permanent infrastructure as grants or budget are available. The following Active Streets have received or are receiving infrastructure improvements:
