On Walking: Growing a Local and National Movement
Full Life Cafe

“On Walking: Growing a Local and National Movement” Tuesday, November 9, 2010 Full Life Cafe (3301 NE Sandy Blvd) 7:30-9:00 p.m.

From the Bike Portland blog post:

The Willamette Pedestrian Coalition (WPC) will host a presentation and discussion tomorrow night to spur attention on walking issues, or what they call "Feet as traffic." At the event, the WPC will discuss why advocating for walking is important, how this movement is growing, potential synergies with bike advocates, and what the next year has in store. WPC will also give a sneak preview of its Getting Around on Foot Action Plan.

The event comes as walking continues to garner headlines. Last week, Oregon Public Radio hosted a wide-ranging discussion about "Foot Traffic" on their Think Out Loud show. In yesterday's paper, The Oregonian reported a "dramatic increase in pedestrian deaths this year"; and just this morning, the Police Bureau responded to a major collision in North Portland where a man driving a car ran into several people, including a four year old in a stroller who sustained life-threatening injuries.

From another blog post:

http://blogtown.portlandmercury.com/BlogtownPDX/archives/2010/11/08/oregon-pedestrian-deaths-up-80-percent

"This morning various news organizations across the state reported some alarming news: pedestrian fatalities are up 80 percent this year.

Three pedestrian deaths last week across the state brought the 2010 total to 52 fatalities, whereas by this time last year 29 pedestrians had been killed by car drivers."

This month we'll be looking at jurisdictional boundaries and election results throughout the metro area. Bikeway connections to Beaverton, Lake Oswego, Gresham, etc all go through county and ODOT jurisdictions, leaving disjoint maintenance schemes, besides bike lanes that end at city limits. How are things changing and what can we do to engage regionally with people who want to ride and build a wider grassroots network?
