Lawrenceville Bike/Ped Committee

In case anyone didn't see it on the blog or facebook, there's a meeting tomorrow of the Lawrenceville Bike and Pedestrian Committee, at 6:00 at the Bike PGH office. This is recently formed group with the goal of developing bike/ped priorities for Lawrenceville to inform our city reps as they make infrastructure and planning decisions. http://localhost/2014/03/31/join-the-lawrenceville-bicycle-pedestrian-advisory-committee-at-their-first-community-meeting/

Curious, what other bike-ped neighborhood groups are there? I've heard about a north side, oakland, and a south side/hills based one maybe?

Ben, I can confirm that there are active bike/ped neighborhood groups active in the North Side, and one in the South Hills communities. Oakland may also have one, but I am not personally involved with that one. There is also a group in the East End/East Suburban communities that is working to get off the ground. On the suburban side, I think I heard that Moon Township was trying to pull one together (or recently had) and know that a ped/bike committee will be kicked off in Westmoreland County in a few weeks. Cranberry also has one, although I am not certain how active it is at present. I think I remember that Butler was also forming one. Anyone else know of others?

mboyd here is the contact for the East Suburbs association, BTW. He has good contacts in the various governments out here, and there is some receptivity to fixing the non-existent bike (and mostly pedestrian) infrastructure. So it's a good thing to get involved with if it concerns you.
