Newton Gets Bronze for Bikes
How bicycle-friendly is the Garden City?
Find out Monday, June 17, 6pm at the War Memorial Auditorium.
That’s when Mayor Warren will join Lois Levin, Newton’s Bicycle Coordinator, for Newton’s Second Annual Bike Summit!
(Spoiler: the League of American Bicyclists awarded Newton a Bronze — a tremendous honor — up from an honorable mention last year)
How big a deal is this?
Expect Mayor Warren and Lois Levin to be joined by members of the Board of Aldermen, Chief Howard Mintz, Transportation Director Bill Paille and the Bicycle Advisory Committee.
Lois and Bill will highlight the new bike lanes, Steve Heinrichs will describe the Middle School bicycle safety education package, and Capt. Marc Gromada will review crash statistics and enforcement of the state Bike Laws.
Plus, you’ll learn about what’s planned for next year, and be able to offer your ideas on making biking better in the city.
The Bicycle Advisory Committee is a subcommittee of the Transportation Advisory Group, formed by Mayor Warren to help advance his vision of a sustainable Newton. The TAG works to make Newton’s streets safe and healthy for all residents.
