You won’t want to miss this important event

We are beyond thrilled that County Executive Ike Leggett  and Council President Roger Berliner will be joining MCDOT Director Al Roshdieh to cut the ribbon on the wonderful new striped crosswalks popping up all over the Pike District.

The ribbon cutting will take place at our third Walkable Wednesday, September 27 at 6pm at the intersection of  Nicholson Lane and Executive Boulevard . These new crosswalks — and other pedestrian improvements we should be seeing soon — are a direct result of our advocacy through the Pike District Pedestrian Safety Campaign.

Please join Ike Leggett, Roger Berliner, and Al Roshdieh tomorrow at 6 pm.

Fifty pedestrians who love walking in the Pike District participated in last night’s first Walkable Wednesday

We were thrilled that fifty … yes, fifty! … people turned our for our first Walkable Wednesday. The Coalition for Smarter Growth and Friends of White Flint discussed relatively easy-to-execute, relatively inexpensive ways we can make the Pike District safer and more convenient for pedestrians. During the tour, we also pointed out the big and little things that make an area more … or less …walkable. Everyone had a terrific time learning about walkability and most participants asked how they could advocate to make the Pike District as walkable as possible as quickly as possible.

Join us for our next Walkable Wednesday, July 12 at noon which is part of our Pike District Pedestrian Safety Campaign.
