Grand Traverse Region Pro Walk/Pro Bike Advocacy
Norte believes that people of all ages and abilities have the right to safely access schools, parks, neighborhoods, beaches, businesses, and public transit by bike or foot.
In partnership with many awesome people, the Grand Traverse Regional Pro Walk/Pro Bike Advocacy group is committed to advocating for best practice walk and bike infrastructure, forward-thinking policy and smart community design. We aim for a healthier, and wealthier, Grand Traverse region.
Current Neighborhood Pro-Walk/Pro-Bike projects include:
- Revisioned 8th Street
- Traverse City’s Safe Routes To 10 in-town Schools
- Extend the 3 Mile trail
- Sidewalks for Traverse Heights
- Safe Routes To Schools in Long Lake township
- A Better Barlow Street
- HAWK Signals on Grandview Parkway
Should non-motorized forms of transportation be given a higher priority on our local streets and roads?
Do you value neighborhood design that includes a robust network of safe and dedicated bike and pedestrian infrastructure that connects to all of the local destinations that you would like to visit?
Do you support a strong Active Transportation Plan and “Vision Zero” initiatives that aim to eliminate roadway deaths?
While Norte is committed to building a stronger, better connected and more walk/bike friendly communities full time, we are only one piece of the puzzle. In order to see our vision through, we need YOUR voice. We need YOU to advocate for safe, convenient and accessible opportunities. We need YOU to champion biking, walking and rolling year round. We need YOU to take action.
