WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (January 31, 2017)—The City of West Palm Beach has been named the recipient of the 2017 Complete Streets Community Award. The City received this honor at this year’s Safe Streets Summit in Sunrise. The Summit was hosted by the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization.
West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio accepted the award on behalf of the City.
“Our number one goal is to make transportation in the City safe regardless of whether you are a pedestrian, bicyclist or motorist,” Mayor Muoio said. “This recognition reaffirms that our City is leading by example in creating better streets for all users.”
Several jurisdictions in Palm Beach County were nominated for the Complete Streets Community Award.
The award recognizes a local municipality that is creating a transportation network that is safe and efficient and, also, promotes the health and mobility of all residents and visitors by providing high quality multi-modal (pedestrian, bicycle, transit and automobile) access.
At the Safe Streets Summit, Mayor Muoio and City transportation engineer Uyen Dang were both nominated for the Complete Streets Champion Award.
It was announced that the 2018 Safe Streets Summit will be held in Palm Beach County.
