Lee County, FL inspires Lee County, MS!
According to the League of American Bicyclists, the Lee County MPO's 3/19 resolution in support of Secretary LaHood's policy statement on bike/ped accommodations inspired a city planner in Tupelo, MS (which happens to be in Lee County, MS!), to get their Mayor to sign a proclamation in favor of the Secretary's statement.

Secretary LaHood blogs about it today: "Tupelo MS on board for Complete Streets and DOT bicycle-pedestrian policy," Click here to read the Secretary's blog.
Way to go, Lee County MPO, for inspiring other communities around the country to endorse the Secretary's bicycle-pedestrian policy statement!! Maybe we should become "sister communities" with Lee County, MS?!
