Active transportation is simply human-powered locomotion. It's riding your bike to work or walking to school. Cities around the country, like Bellingham, have incorporated the goal of active transportation into their growth management plans.
The problem we face in Whatcom County is a lack of infrastructure supporting bikes and pedestrians. Bellingham is replete with trails and bike lanes, but these ammenities end at the city's border. As our scenic natural and agricultural landscape grows and changes, advocates for smart growth and active transportation infrastructure must be prepared to act.
Thank you to all who came and made this a fascinating, educational and inspiring event!
