Narrowed vehicle lanes, “Share the Road” signage, multi-use paths, traffic calming, flashing pedestrian crossings – have you heard these terms and wonder what it means here in Maine and the Bangor region?
Join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) for breakfast on October 4, 2016 from 7:30 – 9:00 AM at the Hollywood Casino Bangor to hear from experts on how the “Complete Streets” doctrine is being implemented statewide and in the Bangor Region to balance transportation needs of our community.
About our Presenters:
Kierie Piccininni is a Bangor resident and an advocate for safer walking and cycling. She spent ten years commuting by bicycle in two high-profile Complete Street cities, San Francisco and New York. She moved here to stay close to a friend who suffered a traumatic brain injury due to a bicycle-car collision. That experience developed her interest in advocacy for cyclists, pedestrians, and equal accessibility for vulnerable users. She joined the Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Community Spokes program in 2014, then organized Bangor’s safety advisory committee, Walk-n-Roll. Kierie serves on the board of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine and the City of Bangor Commission on Cultural Development, and she is a manager at Winterport Boot Shop.
