streetwalkers update 2

There are some really exciting things to put on your calendars. Okay, really exciting if the thought of walking around safely makes you as giddy as it does me. (see inception of pedestrian/Linda Hamilton mania here)

-A volunteer opportunity! Be involved in taking a count of cyclists and pedestrians. These numbers are going to be used for exciting and official  things! Here are the details:

The city of Lawrence is seeking volunteers for its second annual Bicycle and Pedestrian Count. Counts will be conducted from 10 a.m. to noon and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sept. 15, a Wednesday, and noon to 2 p.m. Sept. 18, a Saturday. Volunteers will manually count bicyclists and pedestrians at several locations across the city, and will need to attend a mandatory training session prior to their scheduled count day. Training sessions will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 13 or 11 a.m. to noon Sept. 14 at the City Commission Room in Lawrence City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St.
For more information or to RSVP, contact Jessica Mortinger at jmortinger@ ci.lawrence.ks.us, or call 832-3165.-Lawrence Journal World

-A Complete Streets Presentation. This is kind of big deal. Livewell Lawrence is bringing a Complete Streets presentation here on Wed., Sept. 29th, 6:30-8:00 in the City Commission Room at City Hall. Complete Streets  is the single most comprehensive, progressive, health promoting and infrastructure changing program out there. I am beyond jazzed that this presentation is happening. This meeting is open to the public and it is important to really turn out to ensure a loud voice and much support for this moving forward. Show up and  I will take you for a drink after; and if you make even the slightest attempt to resemble Linda Hamilton I will buy you two.

Finally a BIG SHOUT out to my new connections at City Hall and Lawrence Memorial.  I am being put to work and learning so much (details coming). We are so blessed to have such committed, intelligent, and motivated people in our community; let's all try not to run over them!


  1. What happened to the boxed wine giveaway? (Can you tell it's a Thursday night at the end of a long week?) Can't wait to hear what you are up to at LMH and C of L.

  2. Thanks for keeping me on track! Contest coming online this weekend and it is only boxed wine-esque and not really boxed wine this time--but I will go out for wine with you anytime! If you prefer the cardboard aftertaste you can always come over.
