Eugene Walking and Biking Summit Jan 31

Eugene Walking and Biking Summit

Join in on Saturday, January 31; 9 AM (doors open at 8:30) at South Eugene High School for all day or choose to attend one or more of the three segments for this year’s Walking and Biking Summit: Crossroads to the Future organized by Eugene’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC)! Join the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy as they engage our community in the conversation regarding support of active transportation as identified in the 2010 Campaign for Active Transportation for the Eugene/Springfield metropolitan area.

Planning for the transportation needs of the 21st Century requires a significant shift in thinking and priorities; although we are confronted by many uncertainties, we can be sure that future transportation needs will be quite unlike the past. The national Rails-to-Trails Conservancy spearheaded the 2010 Campaign for Active Transportation to inspire a grassroots effort advocating for increased federal funding of active transportation modes.

It’s important to make your voice heard and to show our political leaders that we do care about and see the need to prioritize active transportation. We need you there to show you support these goals! Please mark your calendar and come to the 2009 Walking and Biking Summit at South Eugene High School on Saturday, January 31st.
