Action 2020 Bike/Ped Funding Workshops

DateTime: 
08/15/2012 - 8:00am - 4:00pm

 

A pair of exciting, motivational, informative workshop are coming to Missouri in August.

The Action 2020 Workshops are designed to bring together elected officials, staff, and bicycle/pedestrian advocates from across the state to give you specific ideas and techniques you can use to supercharge your local bicycle and pedestrian efforts.

Right now we have lots of staff and elected officials signed up--but so far not too many ordinary citizens or advocates.

So we need you!

Both sessions are identical--just two dates and locations for the same workshop. Attend whichever is more convenient for you.

You would ordinarily pay somewhere in the hundreds of dollars for a workshop of this quality, but thanks to financial support from SRAM we are able to bring this to you for free!

 

We invite you to register for this one-day workshop, locally hosted by Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation, the Missouri Association of Councils of Government (MACOG), and the Pioneer Trails Regional Planning Commission.
 
Action 2020 Workshop attendees will:

  • Learn about potential funding sources that exist for biking and walking projects and programs;
  • Learn the key characteristics, requirements, and opportunities of those sources and best practices from around the country;
  • Discuss favorable factors for bicycling and walking investments;
  • Understand the important role of advocates, agency staff, and elected officials working within Missouri's Statewide Transportation Planning Framework; and,
  • Share knowledge and experiences in the local context, working together to develop a list of local/regional priorities and strategies for funding bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs.

The workshop also serves as a great way to meet and socialize with other advocates, agency staff, elected officials, and bicycle/pedestrian professionals.  This provides a priceless opportunity to develop relationships and learn best practices.
