The American Heart Association, Horizon Foundation and Bicycling Advocates of Howard County have teamed up to launch a new effort to advocate for safer, connected streets for everyone. We want Streets for All in Howard County!
This campaign builds upon the success of 46 organizations and businesses and 2,000 people who advocated for increased bike funding in the county. In the FY 2020 budget proposed by County Executive Calvin Ball and passed by the County Council, $2.2 million was dedicated to bike routes – an amount nearly four times higher than just a few years ago. Still, we must do more to have changes we can see and use, both now and in the future.
A new, world-class complete streets law will ensure a future with better biking and walking, requiring new neighborhoods, new businesses and rehabbed public spaces to have safe places to bike and walk.
Join the movement and take action now: Urge the County Executive and County Council to pass the kind of complete streets law we deserve.
