Creating a Bicycle Friendly New Orleans
Join the Dan Jatres of the Regional Planning Commission and the Nicole McCall of the Metro Bicycle Coalition as they discuss the New Orleans bicycling environment. New Orleans has long had a very large bicycling population, but like many American cities, transportation planning has been focused almost exclusively on motor vehicles for over 60 years. Hurricane Katrina provided New Orleanians with the opportunity to change the city and create more walkable and bikeable neighborhoods. Now, with changes coming to transportation priorities and funding at the federal level, New Orleans has the opportunity to become a national leader in alternative transportation options which will help create livable communities that attract families, promote sustainability and promote economic growth.
Meeting is on Sunday, April 19. Refreshments at 6:30 PM. Program starts at 7 PM. All Orleans Sierra Club meetings are held in the Audubon Zoos Dominion Auditorium. Parking is free, plentiful, and safe. Call Charles Pfeifer, program chair at 504-780-8889 with any questions.
