Join AURA and Bike Austin for a happy hour to learn all about the Bike and Sidewalk Master Plans. We're way behind on good pedestrian infrastructure, and making streets accessible to more people without cars is a necessary step to achieving a city with a great transit system.
More sidewalks can help with parking issues, safe routes to school, walks to an nearby bus stop, and short trips to a local store or a friend's house in the neighborhood.
Great bike infrastructure can make thousands of Austinites feel safe and comfortable leaving their car at home - or even getting rid of it altogether.
We'll do a bit of a deep dive on our community's master plans - and then talk about funding. We're considering making a strong push for a BIKE-PED TRANSIT BOND in 2016, and we want to gauge your support and enthusiasm.
Do you think sidewalks are a must-have in your neighborhood? Do you want to make it easy for Austinites everywhere to get on a bike and go places? Join AURA this Saturday - and spread the word. The more people come, the more we can make this bond plan a reality.
