Welcome to the Livable Streets Network

After months of hard work by the outstanding tech team at The Open Planning Project, here’s the new web site. We hope you like the new design and that you’ll find the new features useful. A quick tour:

LSN_login.jpgThe first thing you may want to do is sign up and become a member to take advantage of all the features of the Livable Streets Network. The log-in box is there in the upper right corner.

Contribute an article to StreetsWiki and help us build a comprehensive, community-created, online encyclopedia on sustainable transportation, urban planning, smart growth and the issues important to Livable Streets activists around the world.

Interested in starting up a Livable Streets project in your own neighborhood? Create a group and use our online tools to get organized, connect with other activists and find the resources you need. Or join an existing group and get involved with a project that’s already underway, like the Upper West Side Streets Renaissance in Manhattan.

Contribute photos, videos and notable web links to Streetsblog and Streetfilms and check out other people’s contributions as well.

Meet other members of the network and add to our growing list of Livable Streets blogs in cities around the world.

And, of course, please let us know if you find any bugs, glitches or typos. If you find something that doesn’t seem to be working as it should, send a report to tips@streetsblog.org or leave a note here in the comments section. We really appreciate your help in this.

So, go now and transform your city. We’ll be drinking cocktails on the deck for the rest of the day. See you tomorrow.
