I have a passion to connect our community in more ways than one - including human-powered means. But what's more so is my love of Dunwoody: Protecting our community. Improving public safety. Looking at how we spend our city taxpayer dollars and asking "What else we could be doing?"; being engaged, building coalitions and creating a better city TODAY.
Senate Passes Transportation Bill - Including Transportation Enhancements
Yesterday, the Senate passed a clean extension on the Transportation Bill with a large margin of 92-6, keeping the important Transportation Enhancements. This means that all current transportation funding and programs will continue to March 31, 2012 — the date the extension expires. During this time we will have much work to do to ensure that bicycling is included in either a long term transportation bill or another extension. Both GA Senators voted "yea" on the clean extension. Give them a call & say thanks!

Say hello to keeping things like the TE grant for nearly $500k that Kingsley Elementary received for their Safe Routes to School program, helping kids to be able to walk or ride their bike to school.
Say hello to keeping things like the TE grant that we got for Dunwoody Village Parkway to redesign a 4-lane 25 MPH motor vehicle-only "speedway", into a Complete Street accessible for ALL users, to include pedestrians and bicyclists.
