One of the things we’re focused on day to day here at Bike Easy is bringing ‘streets built to share’ to every neighborhood in Greater New Orleans. Earlier this year, some of us met and mapped out a strategy of going neighborhood by neighborhood – attending events, sharing stories, petitioning residents and local businesses. Last month we trained a brand new class of Complete Streets Ambassadors, who are taking the lead in speaking out and engaging neighbors. We’ve also assembled a team focused on re-writing our city’s policy for complete streets.
But we need your help if we’re going to be successful in bolstering the city’s complete streets policy, bringing about a connected network of bikeways, and have them built to truly protect bike riders.
At this month’s meeting, we’ll preview an exciting Pop-Up Protected Bikeway we’re planning. Our new class of Complete Streets Ambassadors will discuss the project and explain how you can get involved. They’ll also share why they’ve signed on to make their communities safer for biking and walking.
We’ll share other upcoming volunteer opportunities and hear from everyone on how to organize their neighborhoods.
Hope to see you there!
