Come out and join us on July 20, 2014 from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. for Open Streets! This event promotes community pride, local businesses, air quality, and physical activity, while encouraging the use of streets as a public space for the community to gather and share. With more than 100 documented initiatives in North America, open streets are increasingly common in cities seeking innovative ways to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health goals.
Open Streets are temporary events that invite people to experience public streets in ways other than driving. By temporarily closing streets to motorized traffic, Open Streets provide a safe and comfortable space for people to walk, bicycle, jog, rollerblade and play!
The Open Streets route is located in an area with great bicycle connections and adequate parking, in between Laurel and Whedbee Streets in Fort Collins. If you need help finding a bike route or a place to park, please let us know. And if you live on the route, all you’ll need to do is walk out your front door!
