The City of Bonita Springs and Blue Zones Adopt NPC Safety Tip Card

If you haven't been down Old 41 in Bonita Springs, you have to go. They are doing a remarkable job of implementing Complete Streets/Blue Zones planning that is making the city livable and safe for bicyclists and pedestrians as well as motorists. They are always on the lookout for good ideas, and NPC had one they liked.

When Scott Schnappauf, a member of the city's Bicycle Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee, came across NPC's Safety Tip Card for bicyclists and motorists he thought it was a great educational tool and shared it with his group. Rather than reinvent they wheel, the committee suggested a collaboration.  Jessica Crane, Community Policy Lead for Blue Zones was instrumental in bringing together Bonita Springs Environmental Specialist and Sustainability Coordinator Sean Gibbons and NPC Executive Director Beth Brainard to seal the deal.

The results is a co-branded card that is being distributed in Lee as well as Collier County.  It offers safety tips to motorists on one side and bicyclists on the other in a quick, easy to read format. To date, more than 100,000 cards have been distributed physically and virtually.

NPC welcomes collaboration with other municipalities and neighborhoods. For information about co-branding, contact Beth Brainard (
