Play a Role in Transportation Stimulus

We all need to play a role to make sure that pedestrian and bicycle facilities are included in transportation infrastructure projects in our communities. Action needs to happen now at the local level. Call your Mayor to ensure that your streets become Complete Streets — ones where anyone can travel by foot, bike or car. Tell them why this project is important to your community (Complete Streets can reduce transportation costs and travel times while increasing property values and job growth) and remind them that each roadway project provides an opportunity to include the needs of all users (pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and the disabled).
