Welcome to the Livable Streets Network

So, here’s the new web site. We hope you like the new design and that you’ll find the new features useful. A quick tour:

LSN_login.jpgFirst things first: Sign up and become a member to take advantage of all the features of the Livable Streets Network. The log-in box is there in the upper right corner.

Contribute an article to StreetsWiki and help us build a comprehensive, community-created, online encyclopedia on sustainable transportation, urban planning, smart growth and the issues important to Livable Streets activists around the world.

Interested in starting up a Livable Streets project in your own neighborhood? Create a group and use our online tools to get organized, connect with other activists and find the resources you need. Or join an existing group and get involved with a project that’s already underway. The Upper West Side Streets Renaissance group in Manhattan is a great example of what you can do with LSN Groups.
