WJZ: “Sidewalks to Nowhere”

“Sidewalks To Nowhere: Group Wants Howard County To Take Action On ‘Complete Streets’ Effort”

Reported by Mike Schuh, WJZ, Nov. 11, 2019  

Our Streets for All coalition has been ramping up the pressure to encourage Council Chair Christiana Mercer Rigby to introduce complete streets legislation in the Howard County Council before the end of this year. Last week, Pastor Tyrone Jones of the First Baptist Church of Guilford, community member and mother of three Annalisse Daly and the Horizon Foundation gathered for an interview with WJZ to show the need for safer streets and sidewalks.  

Thank you Pastor Jones and Annalisse for sharing your experiences to showcase why Howard County needs a complete streets law.

Watch the WJZ story.

Is there a place in your neighborhood you wish had a sidewalk or bike lane? We want to see it!  

This Wednesday, November 20, the Horizon Foundation will be hosting an Instagram giveaway! Post a picture on Instagram of an area of your neighborhood or a spot you pass on your daily commute that you think needs a sidewalk, crosswalk or bike lane for a chance to win an Amazon gift card. Be sure to use the hashtag #StreetsforAllHoward and tag @councilwomancmr so we can let our County Council Chair know that you want better biking and walking in Howard County. A complete streets law will help us get there.  

The next day, three lucky winners will be randomly chosen to receive a $50 Amazon gift card.
