Does your community have a resurfacing project, a gap in your bike network, or a safety issue for bikes or pedestrians? Want help to plan, engage the community, or get feedback? NOACA’s newest program, an “infrastructure demonstration library,” will help communities demonstrate how projects could look by lending supplies such as paint, delineators, tape, cones and planter boxes to build “popup” infrastructure such as separated bike lanes, traffic circles, pedestrian islands, and more. Bring your team of planners, designers, engineers, community groups or school officials to this free idea workshop to hear how NOACA can help you implement your plan or get your community ready. NOACA will also choose projects to help with this summer. Register at noaca.eventbrite.com.
