MoBikeFed Vision of Bicycling and Walking in Missouri released

MoBikeFed's "Vision of Bicycling and Walking in Missouri" (PDF format) sums up years of conversations with MoBikeFed members, bicyclists, pedestrians, citizens, and officials across Missouri into a single document.

The vision lists concrete, measurable things MoBikeFed--with the cooperation of individuals, groups, agencies, and officials across the state--plans to accomplish in Missouri in the next 5-10 years.

Every action item in the Vision is measurable and progress is measured via the Results Tracker. The Result Tracker allows us to keep closer tabs on where Missouri is, where it needs to go, where we are making good progress, and where we need to concentrate our efforts to make more progress.

An annual "Report Card for Bicycling and Walking in Missouri" summarizes where Missouri stands each year. See the 2008 Report Card here.

The Vision is a work-in-progress and a living document, so please let us know what you think--what should be added or emphasized?

(Note that the PDF version of the Vision is a summary that lists only selected goals and projects. The complete list of priorities and goals is found in the Vision Results Tracker and tracked in the annual Report Card.)
