TONIGHT: Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Seeks Public Opinion

Public Meetings Will Be Hosted February 23-26 in Five Counties. “These meetings will help the MPO understand each community’s existing walking and bicycling opportunities, additional areas that would benefit from bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and obstacles to non-motorized transportation,” said Leslie Meehan, Project Manager with the Nashville Area MPO.

Legislators and Planners determine issue importance by "head counts" at these meetings. Let them know cycling facilities are important with YOUR presence.

WILLIAMSON COUNTY HAD GREAT TURN-OUT (see Blog Link in lower right). It would be nice if everyone demonstrates the importance of cycling in SUMNER COUNTY. We will be taking attendance records.

I second (or would it be third) the comments about Leslie.

I also encourage all to attend the Tuesday MPO meeting in Nashville. It's right across the river, close proximity to LP Field. Check the "Regional Forum" blog link down on the right for precise directions.

Folks, our presence at any Bike/Ped meeting is imperative, whether we personally see the locale as pertinent.

What we do today will impact not only us, but our children's, grandchildren's, etc., cycling opportunities.

Let's make sure the FOGBEES are always well-represented so others can see the stellar people we know each other to be.

We are the FOGBEES,
the mighty, mighty, FOGBEES!
