Gary Toth, Director of Project for Public Spaces, will present "Principles of Great Streets" and "Why Streets as Places" during an interactive workshop from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday in the Mayor's Conference Room, Kalana O Maui building, 200 S. High St. in Wailuku.
This workshop is free and open to the public. Time permitting, a street audit will also take place, with members sharing their findings with the group.
Project for Public Spaces is a nonprofit planning, design and educational organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build stronger communities. Its approach helps citizens transform their public spaces into vital places that highlight local assets, spur rejuvenation and serve common needs, according to a news release.
"Gary Toth brings a wealth of information and experience in creating great streets and communities," said Nutrition and Physical Activity Coalition of Maui County Coordinator Sandra McGuinness. "His time on Maui is especially important now as the county and communities work toward Complete Streets policy development."
This workshop is supported, in part, by the state Department of Health, Healthy Hawai'i Initiative and County of Maui. Seating is limited and reservations are required. For more information or to reserve a space, call McGuinness at 264-7895 or email email@example.com.
