The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) and Open Streets Project presents: *Opening Streets to People, Sharing Resources, Transforming Communitie*s Wednesday, October 10th | 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CDT
**Open streets initiatives temporarily close streets to automobile so that people may use them for any activity but driving—walking, jogging, bicycling, dancing or almost any other physical activity. The open streets movement in North America has grown from only 11 initiatives in 2005 to over 80 in 2012, with more initiatives being launched each year. This free webinar sponsored by APBP and the Open Streets Project features an overview of the Open Streets Project's interactive website ( http://www.openstreetsproject.org/) and case studies of a large city's open streets program and a smaller city's program. Learn about best practices in North and South America and additional resources that can provide further guidance for cities organizing new initiatives.
