Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. Even targeted improvements and policies for walkability can significantly improve quality of life, mobility, and safety in small communities.

Lunch and Light Snacks, coffee, tea, and water will be provided. Please note this event is FREE. We will take a walk as part of this training... come prepared!

St. Louis encephalities found in mosquito traps. A mosquito trap site in the Panhandle has recently tested positive for St. Louis encephalitis along with several more trap sites testing positive for West Nile virus. While St. Louis encephalitis is endemic to Nebraska, outbreaks are rare and occur only periodically. St. Louis is similar to West Nile in symptoms and transmission. There is no specific treatment for St. Louis encephalitis. Symptoms can start to develop in an individual 5 to 15 days after being bitten by a mosquito with the infection.
