Thumbs up: Get connected

Advocates of innovations in the local transportation scene have plenty to celebrate this week. First, the city-county council approved and the mayor is expected to sign a Complete Streets ordinance. It institutionalizes a process whereby planners of new infrastructure projects must consider the needs of all users of the city's transportation corridors, from cars and buses to cyclists and wheelchair users, and file a written explanation in cases that donÕt meet the needs of a diverse use base. Second, Indy Connect Day at the Indiana State Fair on Friday, Aug. 17, will provide advocates with a chance to energize Hoosiers about Indy Connect's vision for the future of multi-modal transportation in Central Indiana. All the organizations in the Indy Connect partnership, including the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority and IndyGo, will be on hand to answer questions and host a series of experience stations, each highlighting a different form of transportation featured in the plan.
