Connections - Getting from Point A to Point B without a car

One final bump for the first ever Grand Rapids Bike Summit!

We've got over 200 people pre-registered (our auditorium only holds 232) and it looks to be a fantastic day of education and discussion!

Also, I just found out today that the three antique bikes we'll have on display include a nearly one-of-a-kind all wood "boneshaker" velocipede made in Detroit in 1867, a fixed gear track bike from the late 1800s similar to what Major Taylor would have raced on. And a beautifully restored cruiser from the 1940s. (You can see these and many more antique bicycles on display at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum in Grand Haven this summer).

So excited!!!!

Green Gathering: Actions is Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at Harrison Park Elementary School from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Please park and use the Muskegon Street entrance.

Plan conecpts that capture the public's input will begin to create a vision for what an implemented plan would look like. Five special study areas, including the Grand River, Butterworth Landfill, 201 Market, Joe Taylor Park, and Ball-Perkins Park will integrate the community's ideas into a series of achievable plans. Citizens will be asked to identify partnering opportunities and funding strategies and to prioritize the City's work plan.

If you are unable to attend Green Gathering: Actions, please look for our "Actions Priorities" survey at www.greengrandrapids.ust.gif
