|From Birchwood Design Group's presentation.|
At 4:30 today, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) will hear a presentation by Birchwood Design Group advocating for better bike infrastructure along the Woonasquatucket River, both on the Kinsley/Promenade corridor as well as on Harris Avenue. Birchwood has participated in many exciting projects in Providence, including a proposal for temporary mini-golf games on the I-195 lands, and is participating in this year's Park(ing) Day, which was an organized collaboration between our blog and the Rhode Island chapters of the American Society of Landscape Architecture and the American Institute of Architecture.
"Active transportation was essential for living and working and its future transformation can once again engage human interaction," says Kris Bradner of Birchwood.
I'm more than a little pleased to say that I had a (very small) part in the initial conversation about this project, and I'm excited to see how it's grown and changed during today's presentation. I'm also not afraid to gratuitously toot our blog's horn for bringing Harris Avenue into focus as a corridor that could become a serious bike route, with a photojournalism piece Rachel Playe helped me do in the spring.
Please come out and participate in the discussion!
