The City of Atlanta, City of Decatur, Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, Atlanta Regional Commission and National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) will be hosting the Atlanta Cities for Cycling Road Show on March 29-30, 2012. This is your opportunity to learn how cities around the United States are redesigning their streets to be more bicycle-friendly. Representatives from Austin, Boston, the District of Columbia and nationally-recognized bicycle planning and design firms will share lessons learned and best practices in bikeway design, bike sharing, and related topics.
As part of NACTO’s efforts to promote best cycling practices, the organization conducts Road Show events. These events feature public presentations and meetings with elected officials and transportation professionals, all designed to address local concerns and urge the host city to take the next step in integrating bicycling into their transportation networks. In 2010 and 2011, NACTO Cities for Cycling Road Shows were held in Boston, Baltimore, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
Please RSVP at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2XH6TZ9 by March 26 to help us organize the event. A number of seats are still available, so please pass this invitation along to other stakeholders who may be interested in bicycle planning, design, and implementation.
