Wednesday was East Coast Greenway Day in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County

I hope Annapolis and/or Anne Arundel County gets recognized as a bike-friendly community soon because the local advocacy group, BikeAAA, did a great job organizing our happy hour, getting some politicians to attend and getting them to proclaim Wednesday as East Coast Greenway Day in the city and county.

Now Anne Arundel County is about to get a “Complete Streets” policy. Communities across the country are adopting these policies, which basically say the roadway and right of way is for all users of all ages, not just motorists. So┬áthat means thinking about bike lanes and sidewalks (and hopefully adding them). There’s an out in all these things, of course, but having the policy on the books sets the tone for planners, traffic engineers and developers.
