Advocacy Meeting – January 8th



Advocacy Meeting – January 8th

Welcome to 2009!  I hope the holidays were good to everyone and you are ready to help make 2009 the yaer of the bicycle in Providence.  Our next adocacy meeting is just around the corner.   We will be meeting @ 6pm, at the office of Red Five Sports Group (269 S Main St, Providence).  On the agenda for this meeting:

Continuing Business:

  • The Bike Providence T-shirt design
  • Public Service Announcement project update
  • Driver manual pamphlet update
  • Henderson and Washington bridge updates
  • NBW/GARI grant application
  • Bike to Work Day (B2WD)

New Business:

  • Discussion about what we can do to help DOT apply for grants to support bicycle infrastructure under the stimulus package.
  • Google Map displaying official city routes, recommended routes, points-of-interest, etc.

There will be time to discuss other topics after these items are discussed.

As always, we encourage anyone interested in bicycle advocacy to attend our meetings.  We want to hear from as many voices and willing volunteers as we can!
