“What Moves You?”.

Hello Central Alberta Bicycle Club members,

I’m a member of the City or Red Deer’s Integrated Movement Study. The Integrated Movement Study is asking Red Deerians “What Moves You?”. The project is a review of our existing policies and procedures, our community’s attitudes and choices, and the best practices regarding the movement of people and goods in an urban environment. We will engage in shared learning opportunities to build an understanding of options for multi-modal movement that are true to our city and ensure well-informed and well-integrated land use and transportation planning decision making.

The learning opportunities include an ongoing speaker series with multiple events over the next year. These events will have renowned experts present on a variety of subjects related to transportation and placemaking. The speaker series events are also intended to engage attendants and provide Red Deerians the opportunity to ask questions, raise concerns, and present us their vision for the future of people & goods movement in Red Deer.

We are hoping to have a variety of citizens attend the spear series events in order to capture responses from a wide range of individuals and interest groups. I would like to invite all members of the Central Alberta Bicycle Club to attend the first speaker series event on September 22, 2011, 6:30-8:30 at Executive Place, 4900 – 50 Street. This first event will be in conjunction with the Walkability Roadshow and will focus on walking and making Red Deer more pedestrian friendly.

If you would like more information about the Integrated Movement Study, the Speakers Series, or the Walkability Roadshow, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the contact information below. I have also attached a PDF that contains some information for the September 22, 2011 event. Lastly, could you please forward this information to anyone you believe may have an interest in attending.

I hope to see you all there!
