BANGOR – Residents met at the doughty school wednesday to exchange methods to improve safety in the city.
They were joined by members of the police, legislature, DOT, and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine to exchange ideas. There were also clickers handed out so everyone in attendance could weigh in through poll questions.
“There could be a terrific project,” Erik daSilva of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine said. “And if it only comes from one point of view, let’s say the Department of Transportation, they might miss out on things the local community feel would be very obvious. We’re asking them to let us know what areas of the city they are uncomfortable walking.”
Those in attendance were given reflective gear on their way out.
If you would like help suggest projects and ideas, the group will be meeting again Wednesday, August 16th at the Cohen School to brainstorm on the other side of the city.
