My name is Kate Lewis and I am the newest addition to the MLUI team. I am currently serving a second year as an AmeriCorps VISTA here in Traverse City and I’m excited to be hosted by such an outstanding organization.
Traverse City’s 20th annual Smart Commute Week is set for Saturday, May 31, through Saturday, June 7. Register now for the Smart Commute Challenge-it’s free, open to the public, and available for all ages and abilities. One person can be a team, but it’s always more fun as a group, so rally your friends, co-workers, classmates and families and register by Friday, May 16.
Over the weekend I explored another BATA route and how it also makes a connection with a TART trail.
I celebrated Smart Commute Week by riding my bike to work every day this week-except on Tuesday when I kayaked to work with my colleague Jim Sluyter. But for me, Smart Commuting didn’t end on Friday.
Our friends at the TART Trails, the Land Information and Access Association (LIAA), and My Wheels Are Turning have teamed up to lead a coalition of local groups and citizens to move the concept of Complete Streets forward in Grand Traverse County.
The 16th annual Traverse City Smart Commute Week is now over, and what a week it was!
