Do you think Monroe County is walkable and bikeable? The County is looking for public feedback on its proposed Active Transportation Plan, which will provide equity-focused changes to non-motorized transportation networks. What kinds of policies and infrastructure would you like to see?

We discuss that question with our guests:
