Seeking a Variety of Memphians for Video Project During April

You are being invited to participate in a unique video project to help enhance and improve Memphis streets, their design, and the quality of life in Memphis.

ULI Memphis (Urban Land Institute) and PACE (Partnership for Active Community Environments) at The University of Memphis developed a program Great Streets-Healthy Communities, because our streets are our greatest public space and they can be designed to support all users, enhance quality of life in communities, and promote active, healthy communities.

Our current Memphis/Shelby County Complete Streets Coalition is working to develop a Complete Streets policy for the City and County. When the policy is completed, advocacy work to seek adoption by local legislatures will begin.

The video will:

– demonstrate the need for adopting a Complete Streets approach

– illustrate how a Complete Streets approach can enhance street design

– connect street design to active community environments/healthy communities concepts

We are currently looking for approximately 10 people to be in our video.

We seek experts in engineering, planning, design of streets, as well as policy makers and developers, to speak briefly in the video about our streets.

Additionally, we seek a variety of community "users" who may be pedestrians, bicyclists, elderly, children, wheelchair users, bus riders, in addition to drivers, who can speak about their experience using Memphis streets.

The video is being made with input from Memphis Community Development, Livable Memphis, and the Memphis Regional Design Center to help improve our city!

With your help, the video can have a positive impact on the future design of Memphis streets.

To schedule a brief interview during the next 2 weeks, please contact: NickiNewburger
