9:30 – 11:30 am
Holland City Hall,
270 River Avenue, Holland

Please join a lively presentation and discussion concerning how we can make Downtown Holland more welcoming to bicycle riders of all ages and levels of expertise and how the bicycle can become the travel mode of choice for more folks coming Downtown and the interface with other ways of moving about.

Leading our discussion will be Dan Burden, Director of Walkable and Livable Communities, Port Townsend, WA.  This discussion is being sponsored by the Holland Downtown Development Authority and the City’s Department of Community and Neighborhood Services.  Questions can be directed to Phil Meyer, Department Director, at 616-355-1363 or p.meyer@cityofholland.com.
