From October 2017 through January 2018, Connect Community and partners brought together over 70 organizations, neighborhood groups, and public agencies to strategize an action plan for Gulfton-Sharpstown. Four workgroups of stakeholders worked collaboratively to create visions for housing affordability and quality, transportation access and safety, community health and wellness, and education and workforce development.

Last week, CalAmp CEO, Michael Burdiek was appointed to Together for Safer Roads’ board. Additionally, mayor Muriel E. Bowser has selected a transportation policy veteran to lead the district’s ambitious plan to dramatically reduce traffic fatalities.
Last week, TSR president David Braunstein explains how appropriate technologies have the ability to help reduce collisions with first responders and ensure they get to the incident quickly and safely. Additionally, traffic deaths may be down under Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero program, but there are more crashes since the program began and a steadily rising injury toll, according to NYPD data.
Last week, Together for Safer Roads promoted traffic safety with AB InBev in Shanghai for the fourth year in a row. Additionally, progress has been made through safety legislation, yet, traffic crashes remain the leading cause of death for children and young adults.
