Small projects can have big impact. We’ve seen this again and again over the past three years from the projects that have emerged from the annual updayton Summit.
The City of Dayton’s Andrew Rodney has a big idea for a small project that could make Dayton a more bike friendly city. Led by Andrew, the City of Dayton, along with the Downtown Dayton Partnership and the downtown business community has set a goal to add 100 new bike racks throughout the downtown core and the Oregon Arts District. Racks will be placed strategically to provide bike parking in front of popular destinations and on almost every block. This surge in bike racks will make biking a more viable mode of transportation for workers, visitors, and residents in downtown. The racks are simple and quick to install making the whole project a quick win for multi-modal transportation.
Project leaders have already secured more than half of the funding for the project. The rest will be raised by public and private sector partners. Andrew has asked for the support of the updayton in this effort and we have his back. To get involved in this important effort, please contact email@example.com.
