Bike Concord has composed a letter to the City of Concord urging the adoption of policies that will guide our city to a bikeable, walkable future. The time to call for these policies is now, as the ongoing Master Plan process offers an unusual chance to get them adopted.
Please sign Bike Concord’s letter to the City, and support a safer, healthier Concord. We’ll be submitting the letter to the City on July 24 at the latest, so please share the online petition with family and friends and help us gather a lot of names.
We’ll also have paper copies of the letter at Bike Tent each Thursday, and will be collecting signatures in person there.
Everyone who signs will have their name included on the paper copy to the City, unless they tell us otherwise. We would appreciate being able to include your name; every additional name strengthens the signal to the City that our community wants to be safe bicycling and walking anywhere in Concord. But if you would prefer to be omitted from the paper letter, please leave a comment here and we will be sure to honor your wishes.
In addition to individual support, we’re grateful to the following local organizations for putting their names on the letter.
- First 5 Contra Costa
- First 5 Contra Costa – Central County Regional Group
- Juvenile Hall Auxiliary of Contra Costa County
- Monument Crisis Center
- Monument Impact
- Sustainable Contra Costa
If you know of any other organizations that might be interested in signing the letter, please comment.
