Brawley, CA – Proposed improvements to make it easier to bike and walk in Brawley will be presented to the public at the Brawley Chili Cook-Off on November 3. Community members are invited to stop by the “Bike/Walk Booth” to give their input on concepts such as a network of bikeways, safety improvements for walking, and recommended city policies and programs. 

 

Bike/Walk Booth at Brawley Chili Cook-Off

Saturday, November 3

10 am – noon

Ed Weist Field

 

Activities at the booth will be informative and fun. A table will be set up for children to make drawings about walking and biking. Booth visitors may enter a raffle to win small safety items such as a bike bell and a personal light.

 

The City of Brawley is developing a plan to improve conditions for bicycling and walking in the community. This effort has attracted significant public interest–over 300 residents have participated in an online survey to provide input on their travel habits and the types of changes that would encourage them to walk or bike more often. Community members also provided more in-depth input at a workshop on September 13. A summary of community input will be on view at the Bike/Walk Booth.
