"People Powered Movement" Here?

Based on the tiny turnout Tuesday March 25th, I could conclude that Collinsville residents think biking and walking is a very low priority here. I'd like to think otherwise. -- Ted

The link above covers some of the same material discussed here Monday by INCOG's Viplav Putta. There was also a "walking meeting" around two blocks of Collinsville from City Hall ... circling the Post Office and Library ... where numerous improvements for pedistrians that could be made were noted. If you have opinions or questions on pedistrian and bike travel in Collinsville (or this region) please let Mr. Putta know ( or contact Collinsville City Manager Pam Polk. There is no guarantee any improvements will be made but if you don't participate in this early planning process the chances for improvements here decrease. -- Ted Wright

"People Powered Movement"

Join the GO Plan team as we visit Collinsville on March 25th for a "Walkshop", or walking workshop!

Learn about regional bicycle and pedestrian planning, participate in interactive web exercises and walk your community to see what updates have been made or what improvements are still needed.

Thank You From The Academic Team
The High School Academic Team would like to give a HUGE shout-out to the community businesses and organizations that have made donations for our trip to the National Quiz Bowl!

We have received donations from Collinsville Family Pharmacy, RCB Bank, Schultheiss Insurance, and the members of VFW Post 3077! Thank you so much for helping our students live up to their potential!

We are still short of our fundraising goal and need to have our funding in place by April 30 for our trip in May, so it is not too late to make a donation.

The community support shown to our school and students makes it great to be a Cardinal!
