In recent days, there have been several announcements for meetings and discussions in various circles online about some upcoming, exciting Kingston transportation projects. Yet, I can imagine [...]
We are walking, biking, and rolling in Kingston!
The groups that make up the Travel Well Focus Team develop, implement and/or support policy, systems and environmental change by providing transportation agencies and the City of Kingston with tools and recommendations to develop a more complete system that fosters active transportation and healthy living.
What we are doing!
Three active groups make up our Travel Well efforts. We work on separate, but interconnected initiatives.
The Kingston Complete Streets Advisory Council advises the city on policy, environmental, systems change, current transportation projects, and transportation issues that the public brings to light. kingston-ny.gov/CompleteStreetsAdvisoryCouncil
Bike Friendly Kingston advocates for better bicycle infrastructure, safer cycling, and a stronger bicycle culture in Kingston. www.bikefriendlykingston.org
The Kingston Land Trust Rail Trail Committee advocates and supports the development of the Kingston Greenline, a rail trail hub in Kingston supports the intersection of three rail trails in Kingston with trails and on-street Complete Streets infrastructure.
Right now we are all spending a lot of time on the development of the Kingston Connectivity Project, which includes the Building a Better Broadway and Kingston Greenline project. You can find out more about these project and other that the city is doing by checking out this cool map. http://kingston-ny.gov/Projects-Map
The Chair of the Travel Well Focus Team is Kristen Wilson, and if you’d like to find out more about our collaboration or join us, contact her at or firstname.lastname@example.org.
