What are your comments on BikeWalkLee's recommendations to make streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists?

To make Lee County's streets safer for all users, our ped safety report laid out specific actions that we urge Lee County officials,agencies, and others in the community to consider in five broad areas:

1. Ensure that Lee's streets take into account all users (see Saturday's post)
2. Fix problem areas (see Sunday's post)
3. Focus on public education for all road-user groups (see 1/18 post)
4. Enhance enforcement of existing laws (see 1/25 post)
5. Put safe walking and biking into a broader context

As we move forward to advocate action on these suggestions, BikeWalkLee would like to get input from our network of supporters. This is the last of the 5 action areas. If you missed the earlier posts, check out the links. We invite your comments and suggestions.

Today's post focuses on:

5. Put safe walking and biking into a broader context
1) Encourage biking and walking as a transportation alternative as appropriate
2) Recognize the public health benefits of enhanced bike/walk facilities and use.
3) Encourage the Lee County School District to promote walking and biking to school.
4) Recognize the economic benefits of better bike/walk facilities for tourism, economic development and "smart growth" policies
