Washington State Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project

On September 27, 28, and 29 Bellingham will be participating in the Washington State Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project to track progress on local and state efforts to increase walking and bicycling and reduce dependence on single-occupancy vehicles. We are looking for volunteers for 2-hour shifts, either 7-9 a.m. or 4-6 p.m. to count the number of people who walk or bike to their destinations in Bellingham. Volunteers count at one location on the day of their choice (September 27, 28, or 29). If you would like to help with the count, please contact me at 778-7950 or kimbrown@cob.org. This is the fourth year Bellingham has been included as a “count city” in the Washington State Department of Transportation’s (WSDOT) initiative to quantify local and statewide walking and cycling numbers. WSDOT encourages communities to gather the information as part of a statewide effort to contribute to the National Documentation Project. Information from the Bellingham count supports local planning efforts (including our Pedestrian Master Plan) and contributes to the statewide goal of reducing the number of vehicle miles driven and increasing bicycling and walking activity. For more information about the project go to www.wsdot.wa.gov/bike/Count.htm.
