Check out Mark Fenton tomorrow night

This is an event worth checking out.

It's a community meeting hosted by national pedestrian advocate, Mark Fenton. He'll teach you how to audit your neighborhood to rate its walkability. He'll also discuss how we can make our community a better place to get around by both bike and foot. Public officials, city and county employees, and citizens that are interested in challenging our myopic reliance on SOVs-at-any-cost, will be there. So if you read this blog, then you probably should be there too!

Tuesday, Sept 29
Lincoln Center, 1316 N Lincoln St

From the OTM notice:

Mark Fenton is an entertaining, persuasive, and knowledgeable walking advocate; one of the nation's foremost experts on the activity; the former editor-at-large of WALKING Magazine; and host of the PBS series, America's Walking. Mark is a vocal pedestrian advocate and recognized authority on public health issues and the need for community, environmental, and public-policy initiatives to encourage more walking and bicycling.

This isn't a walking/ped thing only though. Any discussion of making a community better for pedestrians must include how to make biking better too. Cyclists, represent!
