Action Alert: Tell Your Legislator to Support Complete Streets!

Your help is needed to pass H.198, the Complete Streets bill, which would change transportation policy to ensure that the needs of all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and older drivers - are considered and accommodated in state and locally managed transportation projects. Complete streetsprovide safe, accessible ways to get around, help young and old be physically active, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and save on gas bills.
Legislators are home this week for Town Meeting Day, and now is an important time to contact them about Complete Streets. We need your help to make sure Complete Streets is a priority for action in the House Transportation Committee.  Please contact members of this committee by mail, email or phone and ask them to support the bill.  If your legislator is not on the Transportation Committee, they need to hear from you too! 

Here's some more information on the matter.
