2018 Gulf Coast Safe Streets Summit (draft)

Join us for the first-ever Gulf Coast Safe Streets Summit!


  • Date: February 27, 2018 from 10a-4p (optional bike ride/walk at 8:30a on the Tampa Riverwalk)
  • Location: Glazer Children’s Museum, 110 W. Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa 33602
  • Registration: $60 fee, please use the link provided to register for the summit

Why hold the summit:

Our region and state are plagued with street designs that are unfriendly to people who walk, ride a bike, or travel in cars or buses. The interactions that take place on our streets can instead value life, encourage commerce, and provide safe connections to each other.

This inaugural Gulf Coast Safe Streets Summit will be West Central Florida’s preeminent educational event aimed at encouraging the implementation of the Complete Streets initiative throughout the region. As we work to elevate our individual efforts, cohesive linkages across to sister counties will lead to regionally significant transportation facilities and safety programs for all modes and for all ages and abilities.

Who should attend:

Anyone in the region who wants to help create healthier and safer communities should come hear energizing and informed speakers, engage with public officials, and mingle with community partners.

Check back soon for more updates as summit details are confirmed.


The Gulf Coast Safe Streets Summit is a collaborative effort between the Hernando/Citrus, Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, and Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organizations, the Polk County Transportation Planning Organization, the Florida Department of Transportation, the USF Center for Urban Transportation Research, and Pedal Power Promoters. This partnership provides a regional approach to prioritize the Complete Streets initiative throughout the local jurisdictions along the Gulf Coast of Florida.
