🔭 SHAPE THE VISION FOR OUR REGION
The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is seeking input on shaping their vision for our region's future. We figured our readers would have phenomenal ideas for what our future should look like!
See for yourself, the survey is very quick (5 mins) and makes you eligible for a gift card to a local restaurant.
Some of the goal options we love are:
- Build livable communities where it safe and easy to walk, bike, and take transit for most daily activities
- Modernize and expand regional public transit service and networks
- Achieve the Vision Zero goal of eliminating transportation fatalities and major injuries

⌚ LAST CALL: WASHINGTON AVE SURVEY CLOSES TODAY
Do you live near Washington Ave or use it often? You about a week left to fill out a quick survey to improve Washington Ave for pedestrians and cyclists.
We need supporters of a safer Washington Ave to take this survey in big numbers. We much prefer the 3-Lane option over the 4-Lane and Mixed-Lane options.
We also recommend safety supporters ask OTIS in the survey to put safety for pedestrians before fast vehicle movement at the intersection of Broad and Washington.
Read more about the project on OTIS's Complete Streets page, or watch these short videos.
New Guidelines for Outdoor Dining
Restaurants that have patio areas on their properties or already have sidewalk café licenses will be able to offer outdoor seating starting Friday, June 12. Businesses without existing permits, and those who wish to expand their existing outdoor dining footprint, are encouraged to apply for our new outdoor dining options. Registration and approval is required for new or expanded outdoor dining prior to opening.
We're an all-volunteer grassroots organization advocating for safe and affordable transportation, abundant housing, and more and better public spaces. You’re receiving this email if you signed up via our website, attended one of our events, or supported one of our advocacy campaigns.
Support our advocacy with a recurring monthly contribution of $5.
