Walking and wheeling forum coming up Saturday

The Walking and Wheeling in the Puddle: Active Transportation forum coming up Saturday is an opportunity for people to share their views.

The Walking and Wheeling in the Puddle: Active Transportation forum coming up Saturday is an opportunity for people to share their views on how to make Williams Lake safer for human powered activities.

Active transportation is any form of human powered transportation such as walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, motor scooter, and inline skating, says Tammy Keetch a member of the Williams Lake Active Transportation Committee.

“The goal of the Active Transportation Committee of community partners is to improve conditions for walking and wheeling for all ages and abilities in Williams Lake from children to elders,” Keetch says.

The free, facilitated forum takes place in the Thompson Rivers University campus this Saturday, April 9 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Forum participants are also invited to join a group walk or ride starting at noon directly after the forum.

Leading up to the forum people are also encouraged to complete a short, online survey to develop and focus forum topics, and to clarify community opinions and concerns.

The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JRQKG9L.
