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.
The Ohio Chapter Transportation Committee supports a diverse, well-rounded transportation policy that accommodates not just automobile users, but bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit users. We encourage the adoption of ”complete streets” policies that encompass all modes in the design, construction, and repair of our roads and bridges. Our goal is to achieve equal opportunity, for all users, to accessible, affordable transportation, which protects our environment, public health, and our communities, while fostering economic activity.
Please contact Nathan Alley for more information and to learn how to get involved. Join us for our team call the 4th Tuesday of the month from 7-8 p.m., please contact Nathan for the conference line number.
