Complete Streets in Film:
A series of shorts

Complete Streets is the concept that street design should prioritize the safety of all users of all modes from all neighborhoods. Houston Tomorrow and the Houston Coalition for Complete Streets will be hosting Houston Complete Streets April 13 - 20, 2013.

Join us for a Complete Streets cram session so we’re all ready for Houston Complete Streets Week. It will be a series of short films including many from StreetsFilms.org as well as local and state governments across the nation.

An expert panel following the film will be comprised of Houstonians working on the health, economic, and environmental benefits of Complete Streets.
