Advocacy Action Alert: Make Danbury Streets More Active!

As an advocate of pursuing opportunities for healthier lifestyles, United Way of Western Connecticut is pleased to share this opportunity for Danbury residents to voice their opinions for improvements that will make for a safer and healthier city.

The City of Danbury has issued a public notice proposal for a proposed Complete Streets design of Westville and Highland Avenue area in Danbury. Complete Streets provides increased safety for those choosing healthier, active transportation (such as walking and cycling), while raising the community's quality of life by improving its road system.

By bringing a Complete Streets design to Danbury, we can make our city safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Walking is not only a great form of exercise and transportation, but can improve safety, social cohesion, and reduce air pollution.

United Way of Western Connecticut encourages all residents to send an email by January 19 to Danbury’s Director of Finance, David St. Hilaire, to share your support for the benefits of Complete Streets, and encourage the adoption of this concept for this road improvement effort.

Active transportation is the easiest way to start and maintain a healthier lifestyle. Join us in this effort to improve our city by making it safer and healthier. Send your email today!
