Volunteers Needed for Annual Bike & Ped Count
Can you spare a couple of hours to help with the 15th annual Shasta Bike and Pedestrian Count? This is the perfect volunteer opportunity that offers a flexible schedule while being outside. The Count takes place Tuesday, Sept 20, Wednesday, Sept 21, and Thursday, September 22nd. You can choose one day/intersection (morning or afternoon) or count a few different intersections. Each shift is either 7-8:30 am or 4:00-6:00 pm. You can select the location and show up Tuesday, or Wednesday, or Thursday (you do not have to count all three days). Our focus is to count annually the third full week of September, however, if you are not available to count that week due to vacation, poor air quality, or an unforeseeable conflict, you can still sign up and count the following week, Sept 27, 28, 29th.
The data collected is very valuable and essential in securing funding for better bike ways in Shasta County (the data has contributed to many of the new bike/pedestrian facilities around the community). Have you cycled or walked the newly transformed West Street behind Shasta High School and U-Prep, or Diestelhorst to Downtown on Riverside and Center Street? This data helps support facilities like these to be built in our community!
