Today is Central Ohio Car Free Day. Visit the website to take the pledge and learn more about transportation alternatives. This is a great reminder that there are other forms of transportation that we should consider and support in Ohio. The main message is that just for one day we should consider our alternatives. This also coincides with PARK(ing) Day which is a global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat.
We hope you will be able to participate in both events. If so, please share your stories about your commute or your PARK(ing) spots.
