Coalition calls for Safe Mobility Bond

Friday, July 17, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

A coalition of 80 Austin businesses and organizations has signaled its support for a $750 million Safe Mobility Bond in November that would fund a network of sidewalks, bikeways, trails and safer streets in the city. According to a letter sent by the Austin Outside coalition, the bond is “Austin’s chance to achieve its progressive mobility goals and transform our city into one where everyone is safe on our streets and is free to choose how they move around. Walking, bicycling, and using a mobility device such as a wheelchair should be enjoyable, convenient, safe ways for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to get where they need to go, whether commuting to work, taking a safe route to school, running errands, visiting a friend, or enjoying nature.” The coalition has also endorsed a public petition asking City Council to put the bond on the November ballot. The letter can be read in its entirety below.
