Sustainable Long Island Attends the Shinnecock Health Fair

Health Fair

On Wednesday August 3rd Sustainable Long Island, along with Creating Healthy Schools and Communities (CHSC) project team partners Western Suffolk BOCES and Stony Brook Medicine, attended the Shinnecock Health Fair.

The project team had a resource table at the Health Fair to introduce residents of the Reservation to the grant program and share information about the CHSC program goals.  Sustainable Long Island also collected feedback from residents about their local infrastructure and what features of “Complete Streets” they would like to see on the Reservation.  Residents were excited to hear about the CHSC grant and intrigued by the idea of incorporating Complete Streets features in their community.

Complete Streets are designed with everyone in mind. They allow for safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and public transit users, no matter the age and ability. Complete Streets integrate people and place into the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of transportation networks.
