Community Helps our Streets Come Alive!

Help Plain Street and Wood Street come alive at this Fall’s Streets Alive! Our event is planned on September 20th from 1-5pm, when we’ll be closing the street to cars–from the Southside Community Center to Wood Street Park–and opening it to people for walking, rolling, biking, dancing and playing!

There are many ways you can get involved:

Streets Alive! Ithaca is a nonprofit, biannual celebration of a street closed to cars and open to people. The main focus of the event is enjoying a street open for people to bike, walk, roll and move. It’s an invitation to be active and to explore alternative ways of moving around in the city.

About the event hosts:

Bike Walk Tompkins mission is to change the culture and infrastructure of the Ithaca area so that people embrace sustainable transportation, especially walking and bicycling, in their everyday lives. We work to advocate, educate, and motivate for more trips done by bike and foot. Bike Walk Tompkins is a project of the Center for Transformative Action (CTA).

Way2Go, a program of Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, is transforming the culture of transportation among users, providers and decision makers, so that everyone can get where they need to go in a fair and sustainable community. Way2Go works collaboratively through events, workshops and education to help people save money, stress less, and go green on transportation.
