Local Bicycling Developments - 2017 & Beyond

  • KRESA - Wile auditorium 1819 E Milham Ave Portage, MI, 49002 United States (map)

How do you go about making a community even more bicycle friendly?  Leading organizations set goals based on the League of American Bicyclists' prestigious "Bike Friendly" awards, then take steps to measure up.  Anyone can use LAB's requirements as a great source for ideas, as well.

This meeting will focus on the first-hand experiences of some of our most progressive local organizations seeking LAB's awards.  It will provide a great chance to ask questions and share your thoughts with speakers, as well.

Speakers include:

City of Portage - Larry Shaffer, City Manager,

Bronson Healthcare Group - Brendan Molony, LEED AP O+M, Sustainability Coordinator and Paul Guthrie, Laboratory Clinical Technical Consultant

Western Michigan University - Bob Miller, Assoc. VP of Community Outreach

This one hour event is scheduled on Wednesday May 17, right in the middle of Kalamazoo Area Bike Week.  It is jointly sponsored by the Kalamazoo Area Transportation Study and Bike Friendly Kalamazoo.  Attending will be a great way to learn first-hand from area leaders about what's in store for our community, in a fast paced format.

The meeting will be held at the Wile Auditorium, KRESA Main Campus, 1819 E. Milham Rd., Kalamazoo, MI at 4pm.   Please advance register on/by April 28, before our general public announcements begin, by going to: Local Bicycling Developments Registration Form
