Jeff Speck Lecture and Workshop

posted Jan 7, 2014, 6:33 PM by Nathan Rome
There's so much going on right now that it's hard to know where to start!  So we'll go with one of the most exciting opportunities to come along in a while for all of you who are interested in helping make Frankfort a better town for walkers and bike riders.

The Kentucky Heritage Council and Preservation Kentucky have teamed up for this year's Kentucky Main Street Program winter conference which will feature a lecture and workshop with Jeff Speck, author of Walkable City:  How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time.  More information can be found at www.heritage.ky.gov.

The lecture is scheduled for 7 pm on Thursday, January 16, at the Grand Theatre.  
The workshop will start at 10 am Friday, January 17, at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.  We were so pumped about this chance to hear from one of the nation's most vocal advocates for pedestrian-friendly cities that we voted in December to foot the bill (no pun intended) for a limited number of folks to attend either event.

Several of you took us up on the offer but there's money left for a few more to go.  If you'd like to be one, please let us know and we'll notify the organizers.  Please specify which event you prefer to attend and include a contact phone number.  This is a first-come, first-served offer so act fast!

Happy Trails!
