Carroll University Bike Advisory Meeting Update

With parking getting tighter every semester, and a new rule starting for the Fall '11 semester that 1st year students will not be allowed to bring a vehicle to campus. Carroll U has begun taking steps towards a bicycle friendly campus. This is a welcomed change for the recent college turned university, that has watched the campus and the student body grow over the past few years.

The committee consist of faculty, students, and representatives from the city of Waukesha, the local and state bicycling organizations, and local bike shops . With the city already making plans to make Waukesha a more bike friendly community it should be an easy transition for the university. After viewing the application for the Bike League's bicycle friendly campus, we were able to discuss some of the shortfalls the campus has, and what is needed in the short and long term to reach this goal. The committee will be sending out a student survey sometime in March.
