Advocacy in Action- BWG Monthly Meeting

The group of advocates that have launched Bike Walk Greenville meet monthly and welcome anyone interested in working towards a more walking- and bicycling-friendly Greenville County. The key agenda items at the May meeting included our progress in applying for 501c3 status, and agreement with the Palmetto Cycling Coalition (PCC) for the aceptance of tax deuctible contributions to BWG through PCC while we wait for our tax deductible designation. We also discussed our public relations efforts, which will center on the new sidewalk and bike lanes needs fuctionality that Mike Nice has developed for us and our recent positive discussions with two members of County Council.

    We did a great thing by having a bike lane extend up E. North Street, but continue it into the city of greer to create one long bike strip connecting these two areas. Many of us are looking for longer safe paths to take form one to the other.
