Please post on the blog.

Hello All,

I just wanted to follow up with you regarding the “Safe Streets for Everyone” campaign that the Regional Planning Commission has underway.

I have safety information trifold cards in English and Spanish that I can provide to you (see attached), bumper stickers, and there is a survey available in English and Spanish:

I’d be glad to drop the safety information cards and bumper stickers off to your office if you’d like some.

Best Regards,
