CAMWEST News for June 2001

Fri Jun 1 00:00:00 EST 2001

Online version:

* Feature: Street Reclaiming
What would it take for our suburban streets to be friendly environments, where children can play and people can walk and cycle safely, and talk without having to shout? How could we get to this picture? Is this even possible? We tackle these questions on this issue. In Brief:

- We have lost the street, mostly to the car. 
- The street is part of your home environment. Take ownership of what goes on there.
