Today's Program
by Amelia Roll

Tonight we had the honor of hosting Ferndale Councilwoman, Melanie Piana.  Councilwoman Piana is a urban developer by trade and very involved in the Complete Streets movement. 

Complete Streets is a national organization that promotes the development of streets that are friendly to all forms of transportation: walking, biking, and motorized vehicles.  Melanie proposed a Complete Streets ordinance to Ferndale City Council and it was adopted.  Because of the budget crisis facing the city, there is no funding available to make infrastructure improvements, but she does hope that in the future the city will be able to make the city safe for all types of travelers.
