There’s a lot going on in Pierce County on the transportation front and we have the scoop. For the last three years in collaboration with the Coalition for Active Transportation and the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, TCC has encouraged thousands of Pierce County residents to walk, bike, and use public transportation. We have had some major successes:
- Pierce County now has a Complete Streets ordinance which will make streets safer for all users
- 40 planners and engineers were educated on the latest in street design at a workshop
- Community bike rides and events engaged more than 5,500 Pierce County residents.
- We heard from 1000 Pierce County residents about the obstacles they face when they walk or bike
And there is more in store!
