March 9 Topic Meeting: “Dangerous by Design: Why our car oriented street design is dangerous”

“Dangerous by Design” will highlight why our street design is too often dangerous for all road users, and will encourage us to think creatively about how to change this. We will present examples from other communities that have improved safety in ways that are sometimes counterintuitive. We will leave considerable time for discussion, so bring questions and ideas. Nicole Freedman, Newton’s Director of Transportation, will join us.

Join the LWVN Transportation Committee for this meeting on Thursday, March 9, from 8:15 am to 9:30 am at the Durant-Kenrick House, 286 Waverley Ave, Newton.  Coffee and donuts provided.

We will also be holding a second meeting on the same topic, but at 7 p.m. on Thursday, at NewTV Studios, 23 Needham Street, Newton Highlands, in their conference room.

This event was postponed from earlier in February, due to a snowstorm and parking emergency conditions.  Keep your fingers crossed there’s no snow this time!
