Ames Bike Summit - Making Transportation Healthy
How we are making transportation
healthy and Complete Streets will be the focus of the Ames Bike Summit on
Friday, February 17, 2017. The Bike
Summit will be held from Noon – 5pm at the Ames Public Library (515 Douglas
The Ames Bicycle Coalition and Healthiest Ames are
co-sponsoring this event in partnership with The Ames Public Library.
The Bike Summit will include presentations from Tony Filippini,
Ames City Transportation Planner; Cathy Brown, ISU Facilities Management; and
Angela Determan, Blue Zones Project – Mason City and members of Mason City’s
Active Living and Transportation Commission, as well as Ames community
members. On-going efforts to improve access to all users
of our transportation throughout Ames will be presented as well as insights
into how other communities have been tackling similar issues. Each presentation will be followed by a short
question and answer; all presenters will be on a panel discussion to wrap up
the Bike Summit and answer further questions. Eric Snyder with the Ames Police Department and John
Shierholz of Healthiest Ames will also be on the discussion panel.
The overarching goal of the
Ames Bike Summit is to update and advance safe and healthy transportation
through biking and walking.
Participation in the Ames Bike Summit is free.
