Rethinking Transportation on Bainbridge Island

Date: Saturday April 28th
Time: 10am-11:30am
Place: Eagle Harbor Congregational Church

Just how well is our car center transportation system working for us? In terms of our health, our environment and the likelihood of ever increasing traffic maybe its time to do some rethinking. Learn the real facts on our car dependency and explore the cleaner, healthier options we have today. Plus learn the results of the recent islandwide Walking & Biking Survey. Working together as a community we can plan for and create a transportation system that works for us, our children and our future.
