Neighbor to the south

There’s interesting transportation news from our neighbor to the south. In a story on pressconnects.com Binghamton is looking at ways to design their community so that people will have access to other transportation modes and not have to depend on a car to get around.

Binghamton is one of 56 communities in 26 states selected by the Environmental Protection Agency to receive technical assistance this year as part of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

Last week there was a meeting of experts and local officials where they toured different areas of the city and discussed ideas on how to improve the streets and sidewalks.

Encouraging signs.
