Counting pedestrians and bicyclists passing through Kenneth Village in September 2010 was a pleasant way to spend two hours. I saw people enjoy using the sidewalks, roadways, and the neighborhood commercial district. My findings, and those of many other volunteers counting at intersections all over the city, helped shape the Glendale Safe and Healthy Streets Plan.
Walk Bike Glendale has set the 2013 annual count for September 25 and 28, and is seeking volunteers throughout the city. Shifts from early morning to early evening are available, the two-hour timeframe is a very manageable commitment, and for anyone who lives in or runs a business in Glendale it is a great way to experience a neighborhood at a human level.
Get outdoors for a couple of hours on September 25 or 28: Register to help collect the data needed to make Glendale a great place to walk and bike! More information on the Walk Bike Glendale website and Facebook event page.
