About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to transform Stamford’s neighborhoods and streets so that they are safe and enjoyable for bicycling, walking, and running.

Why Safer Streets and Connectivity?

It is obvious to anyone who bikes, walks, or runs around town that Stamford is not friendly to pedestrians, bicyclists, or runners. Too many people are killed or horribly injured because of a culture that prioritizes driver convenience over safety. We believe that human lives and the well-being of residents are more important than preserving parking spots or the freedom of drivers to speed down streets.

We support better land use and a street design that reduces car-dependency and promotes walking, running, biking, and transit. A city with less driving is better for the environment (less air pollution / carbon emissions), better for safety, and better for the community, economy, and our neighborhoods.

We advocate for wider sidewalks, protected bike/mobility lanes, more crosswalks, and traffic calming measures such as narrower lanes. We support development that contributes to walkable neighborhoods, safe streets, and transit use. We oppose car-centric planning and unsafe streetscapes.
