We’ve had a great year in 2017, and we have made a lot of progress in advocating for better streets. Around this time last year, we were in the midst of the WalknBike Strategic Plan outreach, the Sidewalk Development Bill was progressing, and we were looking at how we could be most effective in other policy areas in 2017. We've had a lot of successes advocating for better streets with the WalknBike Strategic Plan and on 51st Ave and Nolensville Pike, but we've had some big citywide priority issues we've made traction on too.
Here’s the progress on our major 2017 Advocacy Goals:
Wow, 2017 has been a busy. We've hosted over 40 free community classes, welcomed 1,200 riders to the 13th Tour de Nash, passed the landmark Sidewalks Bill, successfully advocated for $5 Million for Bikeways and $30 Million for Sidewalks, launched a pedestrian safety campaign, joined the Transit for Nashville coalition, and saw over 12,000 people attend Open Streets Nashville.
