Ideas on improving Clifton Corridor?
The Clifton Community Partnership (CCP) has launched a new, interactive Web site to generate dialogue, share ideas and information, and post notices of upcoming events and projects.

The goal of the CCP is to encourage vitality and vibrancy throughout the Clifton Corridor by focusing on activity centers (entertainment, shops, restaurants); transportation choices that provide alternatives to single occupancy vehicles; pedestrian-friendly streetscapes; and housing options that allow people to live closer to campus.

This site provides interested parties an opportunity to share ideas and collaborate about what is working and what needs improvement along the Clifton Corridor. Log on and share your thoughts:
