Near Northside: Safer Streets, Safer Communities
Nostikasari, Dian; Haile, Gelila; Shelton, Kyle
The Near Northside is a historic neighborhood in the heart of Houston. A seemingly ideal area for active living, the community has numerous community assets, commercial hubs, schools and homes within walking or biking distance of one another. However, because of lacking infrastructure for pedestrians and people on bikes, safely traveling between these sites is difficult. This report is the second in a series aimed at aiding efforts to improve street safety in the Houston region. It should be read alongside the survey report done in Near Northside which measures residents' attitudes and perspectives about street safety.
