Cyclist and Pedestrian Safety Campaign for Shreveport-Bossier: A Better Shreveport meeting on Mon, Ap 7, 6 - 7 pm

"Caryn Jenkins will be our special guest at Monday night's A Better Shreveport meeting," says Loren Demerath. "She'll be updating us on ideas for the Cycle and Pedestrian Safety Campaign that she's begun to coordinate."

Says Jenkins, "I spoke with Brian Parsons with the state DOTD Cycling and Pedestrian Commission, and then spoke with Dan Jatres with the Regional Planning Commission in New Orleans. I got some really great tips and info from these guys."

"The campaign will be modeled on successful ones done elsewhere. It could be part of the overall trend in making our cities more bike-able and walk-able. Part of that is the way people are beginning to advocate for their right to bike and walk. Times are changing," notes Demerath.

6:00-7:00 pm, Monday evening at the Wright Math Building, 2907 Woodlawn Ave., two blocks up from the Gold Dome on Centenary's campus.
