Sturgeon Bay Named Bike Friendly Community




The League of American Bicyclists has released its latest round of Bicycle Friendly Communities, and the city of Sturgeon Bay is one of 17 new communities to make the list.

Sturgeon Bay was accorded Bronze status, joining cities like Champaign, IL, Cleveland, OH, and Greeley CO.  Appleton was the only other Wisconsin city on the list of new BFCs.

Paul Anschutz of the city's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board says board members worked over the winter on the lengthy application process and it's gratifying to see their efforts pay off.

"It's also good for tourism and the local economy because this also shows now that we are a bike friendly community," says Anschutz.

Applicants to the program are judged in five categories often referred to as the Five Es -- Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, and Evaluation & Planning. A community must demonstrate achievements in each of the five categories in order to be considered for an award on the Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum level.
