Do you care about bike paths on the Harbor?

By Vidette Staff

CONNECT Grays Harbor is looking for healthy ways to get the Harbor moving — on foot, bicycle and public transportation.

The county’s public health department aims to build a movement around active transportation and create a network of safe ways to walk, ride bicycles and public transport around the Harbor.

The department is currently taking a bike-centric survey on preferences by Harborites. Take the survey at www.healthygh.org and click on the CONNECT Grays Harbor tab to participate. The site will also keep you up to date on proposed routes, upcoming meetings, grants and other active transportation information.

CONNECT is also gathering photos and quotes from people about their desire to connect to a particular route or routes. You can print a ‘Connect Me’ card from the website and take a selfie or photo enjoying your favorite mode of transportation.

Suggested topics include: a family riding the trails around Friends Landing, a group of friends ready for a walk or even a lonely bike in a garage eager for a ride. Add a quote and submit to the CONNECT Grays Harbor website at ccorkery@co.grays-harbor.wa.us. Photos and quotes will be uploaded and shared on the website to showcase the citizens’ voice of active transportation in Grays Harbor.

The next CONNECT Grays Harbor meetings for city officials and community members are Tuesday, April 15, from 2 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. in the large meeting room at the Pearsall Building at 2109 Sumner Ave. in Aberdeen. The same information will be presented at both — pick the times that suit you best.

Call Catherine Corkery for more information at (360) 532-8631 extension 4002 or email ccorkery@co.grays-harbor.wa.us.
