Partnering nationally with the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s 2010 Campaign for Active Transportation, we still hope to secure funding in the 2010 federal transportation bill to expedite the completion of planned improvements. But Earl Blumenauer, the bill’s sponsor, can’t do it alone. Our own Mike Castle (R-House), who’s support would ensure its success, has thus far remained absent on any decision. The 2010 Campaign aims to fund dozens of communities across the country with $50 million each to promote trails, walking and biking for improved mobility. The campaign builds on the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP) in the 2005 federal transportation bill SAFETEA-LU. Learn more about the Active Community Transportation Act of 2009 HERE.
