Important upcoming public meeting for anyone who cares about biking in West Philly

Do you care about bicycling in West Philly? The City's Planning Commission is holding two open houses in October in West Philly. At these meetings, they will introduce draft recommendations for improving biking and walking in West Philly. This is a chance for you to hear what the City is planning on doing in West Philly, and for the City to hear what residents think about it.

Tuesday, October 11
6:00 - 8:00 PM
Myers Recreation Center
5803 Kingsessing Avenue

Wednesday, October 12
6:00 - 8:00 PM
Fisher Fine Arts Library
Apse, 4th Floor
220 S. 34th Street

We think it's very important that people attend these public meetings. One of the biggest drivers for improved bicycling and walking infrastructure in West Philly (or any part of Philly) is an engaged population. A sparsely-attended public meeting gives the impression that residents don't care about innovative active transportation options.

We know that's not true. If you live in West Philly, please attend and bring your neighbors. We'll see you there.
