A Discussion of Bicycles as Transportation in Louisville
If you bike for transportation, or bike-commute, or are interested in becoming a better urban cyclist, then this list is for you! By sharing experiences, innovations, and shortcuts we can make the urban biking experience better for us all. We're also dedicated to making Louisville a more bike-tolerant community, leading by example and (when necessary) by political action.
This list serves as a sounding board for pedestrian issues in Louisville. Discussion of pedestrian issues usually focuses on the so-called five 'E's: Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Enforcement, and Evaluation. Also, obviously, we mean to include not just people walking, but also people using a wheelchair and running. (Bicyclists please go here or here instead).
Changes to the Louisville Metro Land Development Code (LDC) are of great importance to all Louisville residents. Decisions made by the LDC Improvement Committee and subcommittees will impact the character of our community for years to come. The LDC's are therefore of great interest to CART as LDC's directly impact transportation needs, particularly the development path for transportation infrastructure. We believe that the future development path of transportation should be multi-modal, public transit centered with less emphasis on accommodating personal automobiles. Below the fold are the schedules for upcoming meetings of the LDC Improvement Committee and all the LDC Improvement subcommittees as posted at the time of this writing on Metro Louisville's Planning and Design website.
CART will monitor developments of Round Two of the process and provide input when possible. We believe it is important to follow all the subcommittees because all aspects of the LDC have implications for CART's mission of advocating for sustainable public transportation. You never know when a seemingly unrelated item will have significant transportation implications.

CART has undergone some significant changes in the last few months of 2011 and will start the new year with a new President, and a new Attorney representing us on the Bridges Project issues.
Ron Schneider, who had been CART's president for several years, resigned in November, and David Coyte was elected to replace him at the December board meeting. Ron is retired from Kentucky government where he worked in the Division of Air Quality and for the Transportation Cabinet.
He oversaw a review of CART's bylaws and pushed for a more disciplined CART presence. Ron still serves as the Kentucky Representative to the National Association of Rail Passengers and we look forward to working with him in that capacity.
