Levee Loquacity


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.
