Biking the DFW Metroplex - Panel Discussion

Biking the DFW Metroplex - Panel Discussion
 
 The APA Texas Chapter-Midwest Section invites to you to our quarterly professional development and networking luncheon at the City of Arlington.
 
 
TOPIC: Cities all around the Metroplex are making great strides to advance bicycle infrastructure. Within the last three years, several cities have adopted bike plans including the three largest cities in the Metroplex: Dallas (2011), Fort Worth (2010), and Arlington (2011). These plans include hundreds of new on-street and off-street bike lanes and trails that offer several benefits to communities such as improving environmental and personal health, reducing traffic congestion, enhancing quality of life, and spurring new economic development. The luncheon panel will include representatives from Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington. Please join us for lunch (catered by Babe’s) and discussion as we learn more about these regional bike plans.     
 

Cost: $15 for APA Members or $20 Non-APA Members for lunch. Please bring cash or check to event for payment. Please make checks payable to Midwest Section TX Chapter of APA.

AICP CM CREDITS: This professional development session has been approved for 1.5 CM credits

RSVP to Doug McDonald at douglas.mcdonald@ arlingtontx.gov by Wednesday July 11, 2012. Please let us know if you request any vegetarian or other dietary needs for lunch.
