November Active Transportation Meeting

Bicycle ImageFriends of biking and walking,
I didn’t want the week to end without telling you of an important development, and why it is imperative that we have a good turn-out for the November Active Transportation Advisory Committee meeting:
Wednesday, November 5th, in the Shelbyville Public Library Annex, Room A, at 5 p.m.
The reason I initially got involved with bike advocacy in Shelbyville was because of a potential trail that stretches from Rushville to Columbus, with Shelbyville in the middle.  If developed, this would be one of the longest and finest trails in Indiana.  Well, a group from Rush County has begun work on a portion of the trail, and we will devote the November meeting to drawing together interested indivisuals from Rushville, Shelbyville, and Columbus to begin putting together a vision of what the completed trail would look like, and what it would take to get it done.  I have already gotten commitments from people in Columbus and Rushville to come and talk about this.
I have to be honest with you, getting this trail completed as a continuous path from Rushville to Columbus will be a challenge, and will take some time.  However, the economic impact for all of the communities along it, especially Shelbyville since we sit in the middle of it, is too great to ignore.  That, and the health and connectivity aspects make it a very worthy endeavor.
Please come to the November meeting, invite others you think might be interested, and lets get the ball rolling on a project that could greatly benefit our community.
Yours,

Jim Garlits, CEM
