LiveMove has been working hard all summer to plan a Park(ing) Day event on campus. Our event just so happened to work out perfectly to coincide with ASUO’s Street Faire, so grab some food and come hang out with us this Friday!
We will be prepared for rain with tents (thanks Campus Operations!) or shine, have places to park your bike (Possible extra racks and bike valet to help with the bike parking taken away by the Street Faire) and activities to envision what the intersection of University and 15th could be. All the details below and in attached flier.
When: Friday October 17th from 11am-3pm
Where: University St. outside of the EMU
What: Repurposing two parking spaces into a space where you can enjoy snacks from sponsors and delivered by bike, relax in a unique space with your friends and envision a different way to utilize streets.
Why: Because tactical urbanism is all the rage. Did we mention we will have snacks from local businesses being delivered to us by Cascadian Courier Collective! Oh and some blankets and perhaps hot beverages if it’s cold.
We hope you’ve had a great summer. The three officers have been busy this summer meeting with our partners, continuing on our ongoing projects, attending transportation conferences (a benefit of being involved with LiveMove!) and getting ready for the year.
Before we get into our weekly meetings, we want to take advantage of the hopefully still nice weather and have a couple bicycle orientation rides. The rides are an opportunity to:
Get introduced to Eugene via bicycle if you’re new to town or just to get some fresh air if you know Eugene by bike already
Get tips and ask questions of seasoned pros about bike commuting
Learn informally about LiveMove
The rides will be Monday September 29th and Wednesday October 1st from 5-6pm-ish. We will meet at the corner of 13th and University St on campus and take off from there. If you need a bike, check out our partner at the UO Bike Program.
Fall meetings will start October 6th and will be every Monday from 5-6PM in the EMU Rogue River Room.
year (note our Oregon APA Award in the center of the photo) and gone their respective ways for the summer. Some of us are busy looking for jobs in active and public transportation, others are traveling abroad and some are simply enjoying a summer in Oregon. Look for updates in September as LiveMove gears up for another great year, and in the meantime, get out and enjoy the wonderful summer weather by foot, bike, bus, or train!
LiveMove hit the national stage this past week as Allison Camp, LiveMove alum and current Transportation Options Coordinator at Lane Transit District presented our collaborative efforts with LTD on advancing active and public transportation projects in the Eugene-Springfield Community. The presentation was very well received and included a number of comments such as “we need a group like that in our town!” Congrats Allie, and congrats LiveMove, on a job well done! See the
fall term today, and headed their respective ways for some rest and relaxation. We had a term end pizza social the other evening (see photo below), which was well attended and a nice break from the stress of finals! We’ll be starting things up in winter term January 7th, and are looking forward to a new ByDesign project, our first speaker of the academic year, continuing with the Walking School Bus, and of course, more progress on the 13th Ave project. We hope you all have a nice holiday season, and we’ll look forward you seeing you in 2014!
