Earlier this month the mayors of South Bend and Mishawaka stepped up to their podiums to deliver their State of The City addresses. Throughout their speeches they listed the various accomplishments of their cities in 2010, and laid out plans for 2011 and beyond.
Their addresses were well reported by the media, and it is my intention in this post to elaborate on just one facet of their speeches: alternative transportation. Biking and walking. A lot is going on that we, as bikers and walkers don’t fully appreciate.
