This week, with the legislative session moving faster than my ability to cover them in a podcast, we're taking a little break from the legislative sessions.
#DamienTalks with Chris and Melissa Bruntlett of Modacity. Modacity is a Vancouver based consulting team run by this husband and wife team push back against Bikelash in their home city and throughout North America. They do this by telling the stories of how road safety projects have improved communities, business receipts, travel to school and more.
Chris even tells teh story of a restaurant owner who was scared that a road diet project would cost him his business. Now, with bike lanes replacing car parking in front of his establishment, he has more customers than ever.
Modacity will be presenting what they've learned during a trip to Los Angeles in October. On October 8, they'll be at the Echo Park Film Center. On October 11, they'll be at Santa Monica. You can get more information for these events here: Los Angeles, Santa Monica.
We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.
