In case you haven't seen it yet, Chapel Hill has launched a new mapping tool to report bike and pedestrian issues across town. So far, there are plenty of issues that users have already reported, including unsafe biking conditions on Estes Dr Ext and MLK Blvd, inadequate pedestrian crossing lights on East Franklin St, and a laundry list of concerns around UNC's campus.

The Orange Unified Transportation Board has initiated a survey about transportation in Orange County. More information is below.
We need YOUR input! Orange County is working with the NC Department of
Transportation, the Triangle Area Rural Planning Organization, the
Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the
Orange Unified Transportation Board to create a Comprehensive
Transportation Plan (CTP) for the County. It will recommend
improvements for highways, public transportation, and bicycle and
pedestrian facilities over the next 25 to 30 years. Although the CTP
does not schedule or fund improvements, it is an essential tool in
guiding the safe and effective use of the County's transportation
system. The purpose of this survey is to obtain your opinions and
identify transportation issues that are important to the citizens,
businesses, and officials of Orange County.
Nearly two years after BUB's inception, Blue Urban Bikes and the ReCYCLEry have received recognition at RTP Headquarter's 2008 luncheon and award ceremony celebrating the achievements of the year's transportation demand management (TDM) programs, including the Durham County Trip Reduction Ordinance and TDM Programs in RTP, Durham, Orange and Wake Counties.
Chris Richmond, Executive Director of the ReCYCLEry, and I have launched ReCYCLEry.info to publicize the ReCYCLEry and its partners' community programs such as the newly launched Blue Urban Bike program and Carrboro Greenspace.We have tentatively decided to keep the contributors limited, and leave the conversation to more comprehensive forums such as OrangePolitics.
