We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting North Dakota’s first-ever Statewide Active Transportation Summit on July 23, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 6:45 pm (Central Time).
The purpose of the Summit is to convene bicycle riders and walkers from throughout North Dakota to:
- Make connections with each other,
- Connect with the North Dakota Active Transportation Alliance (this organization), and
- Weigh in on the update to the North Dakota Long Range Transportation Plan (called Transportation Connection and available here: www.transportationconnection.org )
The Summit will be held virtually, and will be formatted to help gather the voice and guidance of North Dakota bicycle riders and walkers to better inform the goals and priorities of the North Dakota Department of Transportation’s Long Range Transportation Plan (called Transportation Connection) and which aims to guide the state’s priorities for transportation for the next 20 years.
The Summit will be held as an online web meeting. It will include interactive polls and other tools to gather your guidance within each presentation segment. In addition, it will include a full-length survey to gather your preferences and recommendations.
