The plan is “still in the works” according to the CCC’s Alison Hill, who also says,
“We’re excited about the opportunity to continue Get Lit. It’s a great program and it makes sense for us because bike safety is a central component of our mission.”
Bernards has been looking for someone to take over Get Lit since August. He says the program takes a serious commitment and he doesn’t have the time to keep it going.
If these plans materialize it would be a perfect fate for Get Lit. The program started from a $5,000 ODOT grant that was given out by the CCC through their annual Bike Safety Mini-Grant Program.
And the CCC is no stranger to bike lights…they’re hosting the See & Be Seen Bike Light Parade on November 30th (rumor has it that Commissioner Adams will attend). Don’t miss it!
