Earlier this year Streetsblog Denver teamed up with the Community Active Living Coalition’s Denver PhotoVoices project and asked readers to send in pictures that depict streets working well — #SweetStreets.

Congratulations to Joshua Palmeri, who captured this sun-drenched scene on Wynkoop Street in front of Union Station. And look — no drivers blocking the bike lane! Just a pedicab driver negotiating with a potential passenger.

CALC held an expo last month displaying hundreds of photos submitted to the PhotoVoices project. The project crowd-sourced images from people all over the city depicting the good (like street art) and the bad (like missing sidewalks) of Denver’s streets.

Right now, CALC is wrapping up a WALKscope data collection initiative to examine the walking, biking, and transit environments around 120 schools and recreation centers. The coalition will combine that information with the PhotoVoices visuals and prioritize those 120 sites for improvements. CALC will also work with Denver Public Schools to create travel plans for students that include safe walking and biking routes when possible.

Interested in joining the Community Active Living Coalition? The next meeting is Thursday, August 11, from 5 to 6 p.m. Location to be announced, but RSVP to CALC@denvergov.org.

Congrats again to Joshua, who won a $30 gift card to Target.
