County Commissioners honored & promote "Taking it to the Streets" campaign
At the April 12th Lee County Commission meeting, Dan Moser presented the commissioners with the Florida Bicycle Association's "Elected Officials of the Year" award for 2011. Kudos to the commissioners for their work in integrating complete streets into the county land use planning as part of the recently adopted EAR. As the FBA statement read, "This continued focus of changing the way this county government deals with transportation and community planning, even as budgets are stretched to their limits, is a shining example of the political will required to make our communities more walkable, bikeable, livable."
Also at the meeting, the Board adopted a resolution in support of the April 13-23 "Taking it to the Streets" campaign, which "encourages residents and visitors of Lee County and the City of Fort Myers to consider, utilize, and track alternatives to drive-alone commuting."
