After nearly one year of public meetings, persistence, and a lot of hard work, a Livable Streets ordinance was passed in Caruthersville in April 2017. Dawn Jordan, Caruthersville Healthy Communities Coordinator for Pemiscot County Initiative Network, led the effort to bring Livable Streets to Caruthersville. “The motivation was to make sure the streets are livable, useable, and resident-friendly,” Jordan said. . . . “We had meetings. We went to several businesses. We went to residents as a whole. I went to some of my committee members that are on the Caruthersville Healthy Communities Board, so they were able to voice their opinions as well,” Jordan said. “Abby from PedNet came in and met with residents, business owners, the mayor, and some council men and women as well.”
