A good street is more than just a fantastic place to be. It’s a vital building block for a strong community. There’s a grassroots movement of people who are changing everything about how our streets are built—and they could use your help.

We understand how frustrating the problem of bad street design is, especially because most communities don’t have a vision or language for an alternative. But you don’t have to accept the status quo.

Strong Towns literally wrote the book on building safe and productive streets. We help public officials, professionals, and citizen advocates take control of their local streets. We’ve seen places transformed. The same is possible for your city, too.

 

GREAT STREETS ARE SAFE

Bad street design is the primary cause of vehicle crashes involving fatalities and traumatic injuries.

GREAT STREETS ARE FOR PEOPLE

We need to build streets that are dominated by people and accommodate automobiles—not the other way around.

GREAT STREETS ARE POSSIBLE

You have all the authority you need to build safe and productive streets.
