Brooklyn Centre Walks-n-Bikes

Dear Blogger-

Brooklyn Centre has been chosen by NOACA as the site for one of four
workshops in 2008 conducted by the National Center for Biking and Walking
(NCBW). NCBW will be conducting the four- hour workshop that will identify
real-world problems and hands-on solutions for making our community a more
pedestrian and bicycle-friendly place.

Trainers will deliver a presentation showing the elements of a walkable
community and solutions to common issues. They will then lead us on an
interpretive walking tour of a predetermined study area. We have chosen the
Pearl Road-Denison Avenue area that includes arthouse, Denison Elementary
School, Brooklyn Public Library, and several area churches as well as a
portion of our commercial district. After our guided walk, we will gather
in small breakout groups to identify specific measures, from the eye of a
pedestrian, to improve conditions for waking and biking. Before the
workshop ends, we will come together to form one large group to share our
findings so that we can form an action plan to create a hospitable community
for bikes and people.

The workshop is free, and the public is invited to participate, but seats
are limited. Please contact Rudy Hauret and Gloria Ferris, coordinators for
this event sponsored Brooklyn Centre Community Association.

When: Tuesday, June 3rd
1:00 p.m. to 5 :00 p.m.

Where: Brooklyn Memorial Methodist Church
2607 Archwood Avenue

RSVP: Space is limited.
