Bike Network Planning Open House Workshops Conclude This Week

NEW ORLEANS — The City of New Orleans’ Office of Transportation, in collaboration with the Department of Public Works, the City Planning Commission and our community partners, this week concludes a series of "open house" neighborhood workshops to engage residents about the upcoming plan to expand and improve the City’s bike network, also known as Moving New Orleans Bikes.

The open houses pick up tonight for residents of District C, with a meeting from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Algiers Regional Library (3014 Holiday Drive). (Click here to view map.) Kristin Gisleson Palmer, City Councilmember for District C and chair of the Transportation Committee, is expected to attend.

You can view and download the flyer for tonight’s meeting below.

These seven meetings, held April 8-18, will explain how the City plans to:

  • Create a community-inspired vision for the New Orleans bikeway network
  • Educate the public on the bikeway planning effort
  • Discuss the importance of safe and protected bikeway infrastructure and it’s benefit to all modes of traffic
  • Gather support for a rapid build-out of the bikeway network once planned

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
