The July/August 2010 edition of the AARP Bulletin's article entitled Biketopia, led me to the attached video. The article itself explains how Brunswick, Maine became a LAB designated Bike Friendly Community.
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, which was formed over 10 years ago, diligently works to keep issues in front of the community officials and planning groups in the area.
I think the take home message for this article is in line with my theory of how to affect change in your community - Relationship building, education, persistence and patience.

Or look for your personal copy of AARP Bulletin in your mailbox...and I know you get it....
