INFO AND PLANNING SUMMIT ON ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION FOR THE CITY OF TROY
Date: Thursday January 31, 2013
Location: The Sanctuary for Independent Media
3361 6th Avenue in North Troy
A meeting is being called to assess the varied interests in bicycle infrastructure and alternative transportation initiatives in Troy. We are asking any citizens, planners, politicians, and/or cyclists with an interest in making Troy a more bicycle-friendly city in the coming year and beyond to please attend and participate.
Representatives from various organizations and initiatives will be on hand to debrief us on their initiatives, including: Saratoga's Complete Streets Legislation, The Albany Bike Master Plan, The Foodcycle Project, and a call for a Citizens Working Group on Transportation Alternatives. We will also brainstorm the many possibilities for Troy to move forward on this front and discuss what it might take to make it happen.
