Pass It On- Mark Fenton Is Coming To Town!

Anybody picked up the September issue of OutThere Monthly? If you have, you've probably noticed the interview with Mark Fenton, nationally-known pedestrian advocate extrordinaire.

We're teaming up with the Spokane Regional Health District and the YWCA/YMCA to bring Mr. Fenton to Spokane on Sept. 29 to train local leaders, planners, and engineers about how to make Spokane more walkable. There will also be a community meeting that night to let citizens know what their part in the process is.

If you're not familiar with Mark Fenton, here's the Q&A the magazine did with him. And for more information on the community meeting, click on the flyer above to see it full size. Feel free to print it and post it at your place of work, or pass it on to others who may be interested.
