Complete Streets Institute Starts Tomorrow In Spokane Valley

Okay folks, sorry about the short notice on this one but somehow I missed it until now. I know a lot of you who read this blog are interested in Complete Streets, streets that are designed and operated to enable safe, attractive, and comfortable access and travel for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and public transit users of all ages and abilities. So, you may be interested in the Safe Routes to School Institute being held tomorrow and Friday in Spokane Valley.

Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction
The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction is sponsoring the Institute, which is an opportunity for anyone intersted to attend sessions on bike and pedestrian safety education, encouragement and engineering best practices, and many other topics.
Here is more information and how to register, from the Bicycle Alliance of Washington.
