Bike-WalkMembers of the Fairfield Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee will be joining us at Fairfield’s Earth Day Celebration Sat, 4/25, 10am-4pm @ Fairfield Warde High School, 755 Melville Ave.   The committee, created by town officials, is charged with implementing the Town of Fairfield’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.  As with the Library to Library “test ride” just completed on 4/19, the Committee encourages walking and biking for transportation, which conserves energy, improves air quality, reduces traffic and the need for parking. Cycling and walking also improve health and fitness and invigorate the local economy through increased access to local businesses and greater potential for tourism. Committee members will be on hand to describe some of the key goals for 2015.
