The federal Transportation Committee is considering the elimination of bike and pedestrian funding in their upcoming plan. This would include Safe Routes to School and Recreational Trails Program funds – two funding sources Buncombe County relies heavily upon.
If you see fit, please contact your Senator and Congressman (FYI: Heath Shuler is on the Transportation Committee) to let them know you are not in favor. Links to their contact information are in the below message.
