Safe Streets Summit
Nov. 3, 2022
RP Funding Center - Lakeland, Florida
The Fifth Annual Gulf Coast Safe Streets Summit is an educational event that brings together national speakers, public officials, technical staff, sister counties and community partners to elevate our efforts on how to design and implement safe and equitable transportation facilities for all modes of transportation.
The GCSSS is a great opportunity to learn more about safety efforts in the region, lessons learned from elsewhere and explore how we can continue to work together to make our community safer for everyone.
This year's summit is more than just speakers. Participants will experience first-hand how different concepts, laws and ideas impact the safety of those around us and the designs of our transportation infrastructure. Immersive onsite and mobile experiences will be available.
