Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Panel: Great Streets

The Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood Council’s next
Community Forum will feature a “Panel of Visionaries” offering
different perspectives and philosophies on what make a Great Street.

Proponents of Green Streets, Complete Streets, Shared Streets and
the all-inclusive Great Streets will challenge your imagination and
offer examples of community’s that went from simple public space to
Dignified Human Space, all by addressing the street dedication and by
putting a priority on providing for people instead of simply moving
automobiles.

Sustainability, mobility, accessability, walkability, ridability,
enjoyability and profitability are all benefits of a comprehensive
approach to multi-modal, mixed use development that encourages a
vibrant street life on a human scale.

The “Great Streets” Community Forum takes place on Saturday, August
16, 2008 from 8:00 am to 11:30 am in the Kaiser Permanente Auditorium

and features a complimentary breakfast.

Join us in stretching our imaginations, creating a vision for our
community and working together to make Woodland Hills Warner Center a
place of GREAT STREETS!
