Community Tides ~ 4/07/23

The transportation beliefs we have, and the resulting policies, funding and ultimately, infrastructure, affect all aspects of civic life, including human and climate health, housing costs and availability, economic vitality, recreational opportunities, and community equity. Jefferson County and the City of Port Townsend are at a crossroad. The Transportation Lab, with Local 20/20, has planned a one-day conference, Moving in the Right Direction, to be held in Port Townsend on Friday, April 14.  Participants will explore best practices in transportation and hear about research-based policies that make it easier and safer for people to walk, bike and use transit.  Joining KPTZ’s Chris Bricker and co-host Siobhan Canty, President and CEO of Jefferson Community Foundation, are Dave Thielk, a life long advocate for active transportation modalities, and Scott Walker, a Port Townsend Resident for over four decades and founding member of the Transportation Lab.
