Hey everyone, JPBikes doesn’t have many meetings but this is likely as good of a reason as there ever will be.
Lauren Ockene, a JPBikes member, posted a message to our group about a week ago (see next post below) summarizing the most recent meeting of the Citizen’s Advisory Group for the Centre/South Street Transportation and Streetscape Action Plan. Lauren has been advocating tirelessly for improved bicycle accommodations in the streetscape plan, and as a result the consultants have been working bike-specific improvements (e.g. bike lanes on Centre and South, various traffic calming measures) into their proposals. As exciting as some of these proposals may be, only public support can ensure that they become reality.
JPBikes will host a meeting next Thursday the 11th to discuss a plan for gaining that public support and to train those interested in volunteering towards this effort (time and place TBA). The next Centre/South meeting is expected to within the next few weeks, so time is short.
Expect another email soon with the specific time and place (either Agassiz School or Curtis Hall probably).
