Walk or Bike in Cambridge? Join the City's Efforts

Given that C-port is easy walking or biking distance from huge employment hubs in Harvard, MIT, Longwood Medical Area and downtown, it makes sense that our neighborhood would rank among the leaders in biking and walking commutes in Cambridge (and the city itself ranks #1 nationally in walking commutes). And, given conversations with cyclists friends of mine, they likely have a lot to say about the City's approach to bikes and pedestrians.

Well, here's their chance. And yours.

From the Chronicle:

The city is looking for people to join its pedestrian and bicycle committees. Pedestrians and cyclists of all ages are encouraged to apply. The two committees work on a variety of issues. They review major development and roadway plans from a pedestrian or cyclist perspective. They work with city staff on general policies and specific projects...

Applicants should be enthusiastic walkers or cyclists who live in Cambridge, can attend monthly meetings, and are willing to work on projects.
