I often get asked, "What the heck is it that a community builder does exactly?" The basic gist is, "Advocating to make #NWI collaborate to implement projects that will positively impact our quality of life." I was happy to help contribute to the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission's BUILD application, "Completing the Vision: The Marquette Greenway." This landmark project is seeking to finish the remaining 30 miles of the 58-mile trail from Chicago to New Buffalo, Michigan. Our efforts advocating for universal design have helped showcased critical mass for improved active transportation amenities across Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. We need to create communities that we can grow up and old in, linking our greenways is a great start.

#activetransportation deserves to be safe. Washington, DC USA @VisionZeroNet @WabaDC @allwalksdc ✌️🇺🇸🕊

It’s a beautiful day to rent a bike from @banks_bikes_inc and hit the trails! Did you know Wolfville is only 4km from sign to sign? Additionally, it is only a 6km ride to @justusgrandpre and 7 km to New Minas via the Harvest Moon Trailway! It’s the perfect time of year to get active in the Valley!

“I would love to bike commute, but I don’t have time after dropping the kids off at school.” Sound familiar to you? For parents looking to switch their commutes, there are options that can fit you and your family's needs. 💻: http://bit.ly/2KluEQv (link in bio) | 📷: @samkittner
