Building Healthy Corridors: Strategies for Transforming Urban and Suburban Arterials into Thriving Places

This webinar will take place January 11, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST. Outdated and automobile-oriented commercial corridors exist in nearly every community across the United States, creating adverse health and safety conditions for the people who live, work, and travel on these streets. Over a two-year period, the ULI Healthy Corridors project investigated best practices to reinvent these under-performing corridors in health-promoting ways. Four “demonstration corridors”—in Denver, Boise, Nashville, and Los Angeles—have engaged local partners in their community to work on the opportunities and challenges for specific corridors to become better places.
