  1. Hi,
    The Henrietta Active Transportation Plan document you have listed as a link only goes to an agenda. It is not the actual plan. Can you please post the plan? Thank you.

  2. Hi I found a great info graphic on speed and pedestrian deaths on your website. can i use it or a revised version for a safety guide we have here in virginia? Over 130K copies have been distributed, and we have a website, we’d give credit of course. Thanks for considering!
