We just wanted to take a minute to thank you for signing the petition, give you an update, and to invite you to a walk/bike ride on August 10th.
There are bills in both the NYS Senate and Assembly asking the NYS DoT to study the feasibility of the Motor Parkway East proposal! The bills got stuck in committee this legislative session but we are hoping to get legislation to the governors desk soon.
We have continued to meet with agencies and elected officials about the proposal. You can find out more about this here - https://twitter.com/MotorPkwyEast
Lastly, we wanted to invite you our Walk/Ride Motor Parkway East event we are organizing on Sunday, August 10th. We will meet up and explore the route of the proposed Motor Parkway East and meet fellow walkers runners and cyclists who want the same. If you’d like to attend the walk click to http://bit.ly/walkmpe and if you’d like to attend the bike ride click to http://bit.ly/ridempe. It’s important that as many of us attend as possible so we can make sure local officials know this is something people in the community really want.
We hope you all have a great summer and hope to see you on the 10th.
Thanks for your support,
- Angus, Jana, John, and Joby
