It’s been two years since the “Four E’s”  announcement – What’s changed?  How can the City push these initiatives forward?

Pittsburgh City Council member Patrick Dowd is calling a Post Agenda Meeting in Council Chambers to discuss bicycle and pedestrian initiatives, on Tuesday, August 31.  The round-table discussion will contain representatives from the Mayor’s office, City Planning, Public Works, Pittsburgh Police, the Port Authority, SPC, Allegheny County and BikePGH.  The focus of the meeting is to assess the the state of bicycle and pedestrian initiatives over the past two years since the Mayor’s announcement of the “Four E’s” initiative and the hiring of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator.  The meeting will look at the improvements that have been made, as well as how the various City departments can work better to further develop the “Four E’s” of Engineering, Education, Enforcement and Events.

Please Attend!

This is a great opportunity for the cyclists to see how the City handles bicycle and pedestrian issues.  The public is encouraged to attend, but there will be no public comments taken at the meeting.
