St. Louis Plan4Health Traffic Calming Demonstrations [YouTube]

Published on Nov 13, 2015

In the fall of 2015, the Missouri Chapter of American Planning Association, the HEAL Partnership, and Trailnet received a Plan4Health grant from the CDC in partnership with American Planning Association and American Public Health Association to work together to implement pop up traffic calming demonstrations. The demonstrations were used as a tool to educate one another on how to create safer streets in the City of St. Louis.

Watch how these demonstrations helped community members, elected officials, and city staff better understand how traffic calming could help their communities.
