Highland Park’s Bike/Walk Advisory Group (BWAG)
is asking for volunteers next week to perform their annual spring bike & pedestrian count (field surveys).
 
The field count provides data that is used to track the success of bike and pedestrian improvements, and to plan for the future. This year’s count comes on the heels of the City Council adopting the 5-year update of the City’s bike/walk transportation plan, MoveHP, last autumn. The information collected will be reported to the City Council, boards, commissions, advisory groups, and used in transportation planning. These counts will show pandemic-era impacts on walking and cycling within the Highland Park community, and prove to be very valuable to ongoing transportation planning work.
 
After you have signed up, BWAG will contact you with details and provide all of the materials you need for the count. Please provide your name, email address, and cell phone number so that we can reach you. Specific time slots are available for May 11, 12, and 15. The effort will need volunteers at 5 different time slots and 6 locations – and yes, you can volunteer for more than 1 shift or more than 1 location.
 
Please let Ghida know if you have any questions. You may also contact Peggy from BWAG, at laemle@sbcglobal.net
