Join County Executive Ike Leggett at Walkable Wednesday September 27

We are beyond thrilled that County Executive Ike Leggett 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 and Al Roshdieh and join us next Wednesday!

Tomorrow is your chance to join the fun at the second Walkable Wednesday

Fifty people attended our first Walkable Wednesday, and we hope you will be part of our second informative and entertaining Walkable Wednesday on July 12 at noon. Join Friends of White Flint and the Coalition for Smarter Growth to learn what makes a community walkable and what we can do to make sure the White Flint area is as walkable as possible as quickly as possible. (This is part of our increasingly successful Pike District Pedestrian Safety Campaign.)
