As you know, we kicked off our Pike District Pedestrian Safety Campaign last week. It’s getting some traction with coverage in Bethesda Beat and a blog post on Greater Greater Washington. There’s been a few posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and my 22-year-old son even told me our signs are being shared on Snapchat.
Now it’s time to start phase two of our campaign. Volunteers from the Coalition for Smarter Growth and Friends of White Flint will canvas the streets of the Pike District on Thursday September 29th asking people to sign our pedestrian improvement petition. We will have a morning shift from 7:30am-9pm, afternoon shift 12pm-2pm, and evening shift 4pm-6pm. Please let us know if you can volunteer help us gather signatures…we can use all the help we can get!
We will also be canvassing residents at Fall Fest on Marinelli Road on October 8th from noon to 2pm, so let us know if you’d like to volunteer next Saturday, too.
Together, we can make the Pike District safe and convenient for pedestrians!
