“In God we trust. Everyone else, bring data.” (Michael Bloomberg)
This action group counts the people walking and biking on one day in Līhu‘e in April or May each year. The “before” counts will provide a baseline of data to be compared with “after” counts, once the Līhu‘e Town Core Mobility and Revitalization Project, funded by a USDOT TIGER grant, is completed. The purpose is to document through objective means whether infrastructure improvements to make walking and biking safer and more pleasant actually lead to more people walking and biking.
Thank you to everyone who has expressed concern about me sitting on the side of Rice St for the last 90 minutes. No, I’m not sign waving or loitering and Sokchea didn’t kick me out of the house— I’m volunteering with Get Fit Kaua’i’s imperative annual pedestrian count for Lihu’e town core. Come walk or ride a bike by, so I can count you too.
