2011 Building Safer Communities & Bicycle Safety Mini-Grant Activities
Summer is here and Grantees across the state are getting out in their communities and getting their projects going. Bicycle Safety Grantees have held successful events already in Grants Pass, Jefferson County, Newberg, and Portland. Building Safer Community Grantees in Bend, and Salem, as well as Clackamas, Douglas, and Lincoln counties are doing great work on projects that include preventing impaired driving, pedestrian safety messages and more. We are looking forward to upcoming grantee events and community projects.
