Our Board of Directors Representing SBW
Robert and Harley had the pleasure of meeting with the board of the Florida Bicycle Association (FBA) and Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), to discuss past, current and future projects.
One of the main topics was "Complete Streets". Simply put, the concept is to provide safe access for cyclist, pedestrians and the handicapped while still moving large volumes of traffic and mass transit through the county. If that was not challenging enough, the county has to get the approval from the 24 cities in Broward County. Each city can have their own concepts of how a street should look, and has a say in the process.
We were very impressed by the care and dedication from the managers and engineers at the Broward MPO. They are in this for the long haul and will continue to improve our streets for all of us. We invited them to join SBW for some club rides to get a cyclist perspective. Hopefully they will accept our offer soon. We also volunteered to cycle through some of their sample and test streets that they have been working on.
Another special guest was Florida House Representitve, Christine Hunschofsky. She and the Florida FBA were responsible to passing a very important bicycle and pedestrian bill that became effective July 1st, 2021.
We thank all who are making a difference!
We are also looking forward to continue these meetings, talks and to working together with city & county official in making south Florida a safer cycling community.
