Walk-Bike Council of Addison County will convene Monday Sept 19, 5 - 6:30 pm on site at ACRPC (14 Seminary St) for those who prefer this or online. An agenda and call in information are below. The agenda is pretty ambitious so we will see how much we can cover. We are experimenting with meeting quarterly and are in the midst of reassigning roles and recruiting new members, especially from the west, north and southern parts of our county. I agreed to chair this meeting. Deep thanks to Adam Franco for doing this on our behalf over the past years, Erik Remsen for refreshing our website homepage, Tim Clark for FB posts and Mike Winslow for holding our structure during the COVID years and throughout the amazing VT Walk Bike Summit hosted by Middlebury this past May. Happy and safe walking and biking, Laura Asermily

Laura,

Thanks for the heads up on this. Just noticed the scooters are mentioned in the agenda? I assume it’s about more regulations for rental scooters ( although I haven’t seen any in town yet ) despite the fact I own one personally. 

I’m waiting for a new solid tire via delivery today to replace my front tire for better reliability on the scooter so maybe I might demo but today is supposed to rain. 

Thanks,

-Adam Glazer
