St. Louis City Community Mobility Committee
Last week, the St. Louis Board of Aldermen, and the streets committee advanced a proposal to create and formally recognize a Community Mobility Committee that will serve an important role advising the City on active transit and personal mobility.
Thank you Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia for introducing this resolution and to the board for supporting it.
The resolution updates the previously established citizen-based Bike Share Working Group that was created to address bike and e-scooter sharing and has evolved to take on more issues facing people who walk, bike, use wheelchairs, take transit or use other mobility devices.
The resolution transforms that group into a more-formal committee that will weigh in on transportation issues for the city, develop policies and be a conduit for residents to have a say greater say in city government.
Trailnet has been part of that working group since its creation and we welcome the continuation of its work to make sure the voices of citizens vulnerable road users are heard by transportation policy makers in the St. Louis Region.
We hope the Community Mobility Committee will be an inclusive space where residents and advocates can work with city officials for more equitable and sustainable transportation policies.
