New Webinar: Act Fast: The Growing Call for Slower Speeds (August 8, 2018)
Every community member has a right to safe places to walk and be physically active. Unfortunately, the rise in pedestrian fatalities in recent years reminds us that our work in protecting that right is far from done. Hear from those leading the call for slower speeds and communities putting people first in the call for safer streets. This webinar is for those advocates just starting out on the walking path as well as those interested in this topic.
Attendees of this webinar will:
Learn about programs, policies, and resources being developed to help in the commitment to reducing traffic fatalities. Hear from a community who is doing the hard work on the ground to make streets safer. Be inspired to take action to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries. You may register for the webinar at the following link.
From our travels across the state……..Cool Bike Racks!!!
From our recent trip across North Idaho we ran across a few really neat bike racks. Who says bike infastructure has to be boring and bland? Here are some good examples where communities went above and beyond. Above is the bike rack at East City Park in Moscow.
The library labeled bike rack in front of the beautiful Coeur d’Alene Public Library.
In Sandpoint a rack built by the North Idaho College Welding Program.
Also in Sandpoint, a brand new bike rack funded by an Angels over Sandpoint grant built by Sandpoint High School student Tanner Kohal located at Farmin-Stidwell Elementary School.
And last but not least….one of our favorites. The bike rack at Lena Whitmore Elementary School in Moscow.
