Newport selected as first CONNECT City

The City of Newport, Kentucky, together with partners ReNewport and Southbank Partners, has been selected as the first CONNECT Challenge City. CONNECT is a competitive process for communities, grassroots organizations and cities that wish to test new infrastructure for walking, bicycles and scooters. CONNECT provides the selected locations with technical resources to engage, plan and implement pilot and demonstration street infrastructure projects that will inform more permanent investments in that city. It is generously funded by the Devou Good Project and managed by the Tri-State Trails arm of Green Umbrella. YARD & Company is serving as the technical advisors and design team for the selected cities.
