Bicycling & Pedestrian Article from Sandy Springs
Coming from the military, I like to see policies, ordinances and other published guidelines that INFORM the public. It's not that I'm "misinformed", as quoted by my Sandy Springs bicycling friend on their Council. Rather, their city isn't informing the public about their plans or policies.
What's so wrong with adopting a Complete Streets policy? Of re-striping to 10-ft lane widths on a 35 mph road? Of creating an Action Plan to become a Bike Friendly Community? Of establishing a community volunteer committee for non-motorized transportation? Of actively partnering -- and establishing formal relationships -- with the local schools and promoting Safe Routes to School?
I'm not from Missouri, but just please show me.
