I am looking for a bike advocate who lives near the C&O canal towpath and resides in MD US congressional district 6.
I am working with other bike and pedestrian advocates within the C&O canal region to share with Rep Trone’s office the opportunity that the Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program could have on funding trails and active transportation networks in District 6.
We want to petition Rep Trone for his support of this program in Fiscal year 2023 appropriations bill. Frederick County has a Bikeways & Trails Plan that envisions a network connection for cyclers and pedestrians that links to the C&O canal towpath. This would not only serve as an important connector for Frederick County Residents but also serve as a key access point for visitors on C&O canal towpath.
Can you help me find someone who would be interested in participating in this conversation with Rep Trone to petition his office to support this program? We are looking at mid-January to set up a meeting with his office. If interested, please contact Shayne Boucher firstname.lastname@example.org
