Annapolis Mobility Matters Summit: More Mobility or More Immobility?

Mayor Josh Cohen and the Community Transportation Association of America invites the public to attend the Annapolis Mobility Matters Summit on Tuesday, July 20th to share strategies and ideas to enhance mobility in and around Maryland's Capital City, determine key issues for further action, and begin planning for the Fall 2010 Mobility Matters Action Forum. The session will begin at 9:30 a.m., lunch will be provided, and the summit will end by 3:00 p.m.
Participants will include leaders and advocates from the community, including community based and social service organizations, city, county and state governments, business and economic development, environmental groups, resident advocates and others. The future of mobility brings together transit, parking, traffic and planning functions to serve drivers, pedestrians, transit riders, bicyclists and area businesses and services. Best practices will be shared from communities within Maryland and across the nation.

I certainly support this and dearly hope that the mayor is serious and not just intending to have more talk and no action. Much can be done when we have leadership and when public and private partners get together with shared goals and a shared vision. ACP has been working to improve transportation and advocating for more mobility choices for everyone for over a decade and so far, well, let's just say that I remain hopeful....barely. ACP plans to attend and participate but, let's just say I have a healthy amount of skepticism from intense personal familiarity.
Let the mayor know by July 14th if you plan to attend by contacting Sharon Cyrus at 410-263-7997 or .
