Complete Streets Ordinance in my town!

I am so excited about this! The City Council of the town I live in just passed a Complete Streets Ordinance requiring all new development to include sidewalks, bike paths and other safe walking options. I had spoken with my city councilor earlier this summer about the idea, suggesting that it would be good for our community. I am so glad they moved forward on it!

Hi Lori,

I saw your story on Free Range Kids and wanted to stop by and congratulate you!

@myredbike, thank you. I'm glad that my experience motivated me to get educated about possibilities and lucky that I found a sympathetic ear in my community who was able to accomplish something.
