As part of the League of American Bicyclists "Bicycle Friendly Community" program, the LAB gives cities feedback, constructive criticism oriented around the five E's of Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Evaluation & Planning. In addition to pointing out current weaknesses or areas for improvement, the criticism is also a road map for the next round of certification. Salem was rated "bronze" and the feedback points the way to silver or gold.
In the next few months, we hope the city will share with us what its plans are for improvement!
