We are proud to be a part of the Texas Coalition for State Parks, a group of 90 organizations educating voters about the Centennial Parks Conservation Fund — Proposition 14 — on the ballot this fall. This $1 billion fund will help secure new parks for future generations of Texans to explore and enjoy without increasing taxes. Make sure you’re registered to vote here, and learn more about Prop 14 here.
From around Texas:
TxDOT is creating bicycle plans for the Bryan, Laredo, Pharr, and San Antonio districts and they want your input–if you live in one of these districts, please send in your comments by Monday, October 9.
Do you have an idea for making your city safer for pedestrians? America Walks’ Community Change Grant application is open until October 9.
Check out the one-year report on the Intersections Initiative, a program between the League of American Bicyclists, America Walks, and the Safe Routes Partnership.

Have a great weekend!
