Scott Street Cycling and Pedestrian Presentation

Co-chair Heather writes:

On November 25, Jeff Leiper hosted an information and Q&A session with City Transportation Planning Staff, on upcoming changes to Scott St, to make it more bicycle and pedestrian friendly. Plans are to upgrade the section from Churchill to Holland later next year. Jeff provided us a copy of the presentation which describes the project and timelines. Within the next month, Staff will put up a web page with further information. The page will be updated as work proceeds.

Thank you,
Heather

BIKE MINDS is a storytelling event where positive and inspiring bike-related stories are shared in front of a live audience from a diverse range of storytellers. Our mission is to change the way you think about people who ride bikes.
