The 16th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth conference will be held Feb. 2-4, 2017 in St. Louis, MO.
A significant factor in the tremendous success of the New Partners Conference is its appeal to so many different disciplines who are each committed to building safer, healthier and more livable communities everywhere.
This conference is unique in that it focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to implementing smart growth principles to help build safer, healthier, more economically viable, transit-oriented and pedestrian-friendly communities across the nation.
“This Little Bike Went to Market” is a popular event in Ottawa, Ontario. Organized by the Citizens for Safe Cycling, volunteers with a known love for cargo bikes came together to Lansdowne Farmer’s Market to put their bikes on display. The event does a great job showing others that transporting kids to school or groceries home by bike is very possible.
Bikes on display included bakfiets by Baboe, Metrofiet, longtails by Xtracycle, and more conventional cargo carrying models. This year, electric assist was also on display. A Twitter campaign showing kids on route to soccer practice or simply the big, epic haul, helped make this a successful spring event.
