Summer is drawing to a close and the Salt Lake County Bicycle Advisory Committee is still looking to fill several empty seats on its Board. Please visit our website at www.slco.org/bicycle/ for links and more information. If you know someone who would be well-suited for this volunteer position, please don’t hesitate to refer them.
The East-West Trails Master Plan is moving ahead with public input and research necessary to implement part of this Active Transportation element of the County. Their website offers an overview of proposed corridors and direct feedback to the planning team via social media. Visit their website for an overview of what is happening and how you can assist: http://www.slcoeastwesttrails.org/.
SLCBAC would like to salute and thank Mayor Ben McAdams for his ongoing dedication to Bicycles and Active Transportation with the announcement of the $800K bicycle transportation fund. The County Mayor was also recognized for his efforts with an award presented at the recent Active Transportation and Health Summit held at the University of Utah this August. Congratulations Mayor McAdams on an award well earned.
