Complete Streets: Streets That Are Safe for 8- and 80-Year Olds


Did you ever wonder why your street is so dangerous for most of its users—those who walk and bike?

The City of Philadelphia has taken the Vision Zero pledge and committed our city to the program. Participating cities pledge to reduce deaths of all those on the streets, whether in cars, walking, biking, or in a stroller, to zero.

The Vision Zero team has been hard at work redesigning streets to make our neighborhoods more livable and safer for all ages. Join this discussion and learn about the current work in Center City as well as the current research that supports new street practices and designs.

Lily Reynolds is the Deputy Director, Office of Complete Streets and Joy Huertas is Vision Zero Communications Manager, both from the Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, & Sustainability for the City of Philadelphia.

This program is free of charge to our members, volunteers and donors. Guests are welcome to attend up to three programs before being required to join and/or volunteer with Penn’s Village. During the coronavirus crisis, we are waiving the three-program limit and $10 fee for non-member guests to help our neighbors stay connected and engaged while social distancing.

Penn’s Village welcomes and actively encourages an inclusive and  diverse community of members, staff, Board of Directors and volunteers. Inclusiveness and diversity means welcoming all and excluding no one because of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, social-economic status, physical abilities, religious beliefs or political beliefs.
