Amber K. Blake
Multi-Modal Coordinator – City of Durango
Calling all cycling advocates!
Our new Multi-Modal Coordinator, Amber Blake, and the City of Durango needs our help to conduct Bike/Ped Counts for Durango as part of the National Documentation Project on multi-modal transportation. These counts will take place on September 8, 9, & 13 and they will be used as a baseline to help discern what kind of impact our future improvements will have.
This project will help to prioritize funding for multi-modal transportation, including more bike lanes, better sidewalks, wider shoulders, better crossings, etc. For more information on the methodology and the project please see the website: www.bikepeddocumentation.org
This is an important project that will directly effect the quality of cycling in Durango!
Amber will have 8 locations on September 8, 9, & 13 and she will need volunteers for each location for 2-hour shifts. The locations will be:
1. CR 250 and Florida
2. Camino and 9th
3. 8th and College
4. E 2nd and 15th
5. Three Springs Blvd @ entrance to hospital
6. 22nd Street at Groovy Bridge
7. 32nd and Main
8. 18th and W 3rd (by Children’s House)
All volunteers will need to:
1. Attend a 30 minute training session to be held at various times from 8/26 thru 9/1.
2. Volunteer for at least one 2 hour block of time.
3. Attend the Celebratory Party!
In addition to the party hosted by the City of Durango, all volunteers will receive 1 raffle ticket for each shift they complete. The volunteer-only raffle will be held at the DWC end of the season party. We will have some very good prizes this year!
