|Open Streets Salem|
|the City as "model" and "leading example"|
TDM chapter of TSP
The City of Salem shall encourage the use of alternative travel modes by serving as an institutional model...[and] leading example.Councilor Andersen is great on this and leads by example. You can often see his bike at City Council. Earlier this summer in the midst of the cyanotoxin crisis, he biked up to our Geren Island water intake and treatment facility.
|Drive Less Challenge|
The Ride with the Mayor could be a pivot to the Drive Less Challenge and Walk+Roll to School Day, for example. It would be great to see daily updates from the Mayor, other Electeds, and other managers. (Remember when City Manager Steve Powers said he was going to bike and walk to City Hall?) They should really get into the challenge, even issue challenges to other municipalities! How about a West Salem focus from the Congestion Relief Task Force?!

|Bike Month and the Bike More Challenge|
It has seemed like the Ride with the Mayor was stranded, and there are ways to leverage it into something more.
