Walkable Reading -- Say Yes!

Make Penn Street more walkable, consultants tell Downtown 2020 committee

If you were able to catch this story in the Reading Eagle, then you know that consultants are encouraging a more walkable plan for the shopping district in downtown Reading. WalkBikeBerks understands that these things don't 'just happen' on their own. Good things come as a result of the efforts of good people doing good work.

If you are one of those who support livable streets -- you know, the kind where it's easy and safe to stroll along store fronts and window shop -- it's time for you to let others know. I encourage you to start typing now. Write a Letter to the Editor in response to this story and support a Complete Streets plan: designed and maintained as a safe and attractive public space that supports walking, bicycling, and public transit.

Together, we can build a Livable City!
