Just because gas prices have dropped doesn’t mean Ohio should build more highways. Recently, 700 Sierra Club members commented on the Ohio Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) 2014 Statewide Transit Needs Study. Now we have the opportunity to weigh in on the specific projects that ODOT will fund in 2015-2018.
We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
Call for Transportation Committee Members
May 9th, 2011
We are in process of building a new transportation committee. Any members with an interest in transportation are encouraged to participate and serve as transportation voices for their community.
Two of the major policies we are urging the state to pursue are fix-it-first and expanding transportation choice. Fix-it-first asks policymakers to repair our distressed roads and bridges instead of building new ones. Expanding transportation choice asks for increasing investment in public transit, safe bikeways, walkable streets, and freight and passenger rail.
Beyond this, we want input from our members as to what improvements they want to see for our transportation system. Get involved and help advance transportation in Ohio!
