Shasta Living Streets is a local program engaging community members and leaders in order to create great cities and towns within our region for an economically viable and vital place to live, work and play.
Living Streets add value to adjacent land and neighborhoods and are designed to support local business and vital neighborhoods and family life. They allow people ages 8-80 to lead an active lifestyle and bicycle and walk for everyday transportation, health and joy. This creates more livable communities that attract and support creative people, families, businesses and tourists and strengthen a sense of community.
We promote livable communities in a number of ways
- Strengthening Public Understanding. By building community support for walking and bicycling for everyday transportation and health through outreach and communication.
- Supporting Events to Experience the vision. Because some people can’t visualize change until they experience it themselves. By developing and implementing local events, as well as supporting events of others, that help community members and leaders experience the vision in order to further develop enthusiasm for walking and bicycling for everyday transportation and health.
- Enabling active citizen volunteers. By communicating with and generating support from local citizen volunteers for projects, support and advocacy
- Supporting leaders, encouraging improvements. Endorse, inform, and promote infrastructure, policy and community development for safe and inviting walking and biking for everyday transportation and health within and between towns and communities in our region
