A safer Mississippi by: Pushing forward design and planning to build Complete Streets taking into account the needs of ALL users of the roads; increasing education and enforcement to reduce the number of cyclist & pedestrian injuries/fatalities and by providing educational tools and materials to Mississippians on safe biking, walking & driving behaviors to make their communities a better place.
A wealthier Mississippi by: Educating municipalities and statewide leaders about the low-cost and high return on investment in bike/ped projects in communities around Mississippi and by shouting to the rooftops about the economic benefits from bicycle related tourism. We want to work reduce personal transportation costs by encouraging sidewalks, bike lanes and more inclusive design instead of increasing motorized traffic lanes and other efforts that support urban sprawl and sedentary livestyles.
A healthier Mississippi by: Encouraging our children to walk or bike to school & providing ways for them to do so safely and easily, providing resources to engineers and planners to encourage better design for public spaces to promote active living and well as working to promote access and funding opportunities for multimodal recreational opportunities and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. We want a healthier Mississippi and encourage people of all ages to live an active lifestyle, and to help us push forward the effort for increased livable communities and quality of life for all Mississippians.
