Dear Cyclists and Wannabes,
S5711B – the stalled Senate bill calling for a “complete streets” approach to road design in New York State needs your help. The bill has been sitting in the transportation committee since May 2010. It passed the Assembly.
I hope you will check out the bill at http://open.nysenate.gov/legislation/bill/S5711A. Then, write a letter (sample attached) or send an e-mail urging the Senators to (1) get the bill out of committee and (2) approve it on the Senate floor.
Note to PHNA-ers – I wrapped Madison Ave. into the letter, so it’ll be an easy edit for you! With Complete Streets in law, the MAC will be reinforced as the right way to go!
Info after the jump.
