Transportation Planning Meetings

Yesterday, I was informed of several regional transportation planning meeting for Robertson, Sumner, and Wilson counties. Because of the late notice I missed last night's and will miss tonight's. Click here for attachment of the communications I have had on these meetings. If you wish to get involved and insure adequate facilities for cycling or other transportation modes, here is your chance to advocate on our behalf.

I did make the Wed, Oct 1 meeting. Only nine of the general public attended. There was a lot of opportunity for discussion. We ere divided into tables and asked to work among ourselves, come to some conclusions and present them to the group. I was elected to represent our table and we focused more on the reactive nature of planning rather than specific plans. Afterward one of the planners mentioned to me that as a cyclist I could have expounded more on the need for alternatives to the automobile. I assured him some of my cohorts would be attending the next meeting and do better.

Thanks Bruce. I believe we'll have Jim Overmohle, Frank, and me at the next meeting. I am surprised (or maybe not, due to the low publicity) at the low turn-out. If cyclists want to be considered in future plans they must be willing to participate in the process. Without your efforts Hendersonville would not be getting a Greenway.
