Presentation Materials from MPO Bike/Ped Safety Action Plan Training Dec. 11th and 12th

Last week the MPO hosted an excellent bike/ped safety training session as a kick-off for the development of the MPO's Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan.  Two national experts from Tindale-Oliver provided the training.  If you or your staff missed the training, the PowerPoint presentation materials are now available on the MPO website.

As stated in our earlier blog post, the Lee MPO is developing a Bicycle Pedestrian Safety Action Plan to reduce bicycle and pedestrian injury and fatality crashes through a wide range of recommended activities that will be identified as part of this project.  The project was approved by the Board in the Spring and the project scope has been defined and a consultant brought on to begin the process of developing the Action Plan.  The first step in launching this effort was a stakeholder training course for staff and professionals as well as advocates and community members.

The MPO hosted  two all-day training sessions--Dec. 11th for staff and professionals and Dec. 12th for advocates and community members. Below are links to the Lee Countywide Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan Stakeholder Training Presentations:

 The project is off to a good start.  The next step in the process is a Technical Stakeholder workshop on Jan. 8th, 1-5 p.m., which will be held at District 1 SWIFT Office at 10041 Daniels Parkway, Fort Myers.  It is important that the full range of stakeholder groups are represented in this year-long project team group.  Contact Don Scott, MPO staff director, for more information.
