The current (Roger Geller) and former (Mia Birk) bike coordinators for the City of Portland will speak at a Women’s Transportation Seminar luncheon tomorrow (1/8).
Birk, who’s now a principal at bike and pedestrian planning firm Alta Planning and Design, will give a talk called, The Leading Edge of Bicycle Transportation Policy and Practice.
Here’s the blurb from the official event web page:
“Portland continues to lead the nation for bicycle transportation planning and implementation. Portland Bicycle Coordinator Roger Geller will discuss ideas for making Portland a world-class cycling city and updating its Bicycle Master Plan, including visionary policies, long-term and short-term safety enhancements, funding opportunities, and targeted marketing.
Former Bicycle Program Manager and current Alta Planning + Design Principal Mia Birk will share the cutting edge in bicycle policy and practice nationwide, including upcoming changes to the AASHTO Guide to Bikeway Design and MUTCD Chapter 9 (Bicycles), innovative bikeway design techniques in other cities, forward-thinking bike-transit-land-use integration policies, and safe routes to school promotion.”
