The following is a press release from the City of Eugene:
There’s a good amount of posts in the “To Do” file but the most important piece right now is to go over to the City of Eugene’s “Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan” website and give your input on the plan. You can complete an online survey, use the interactive map, or simply send in a comment on problem areas, ideas for improvements, favorite spots, or other thoughts on how to make the Eugene infrastructure more bicycle and pedestrian friendly.
Lee Shoemaker is the Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for the City of Eugene. He’s one of the people inside the city who helps cycling advocates “get things done.”
WeBikeEugene contributor Shane Rhodes wrote an update on what Lee is working on for the January 2010 GEARS newsletter, and has graciously allowed us to re-post it here. To receive the full newsletter yourself simply become a member of GEARS (it’s worth it).
