County Executive Jim Kreuser today announced Kenosha County has received an Honorable Mention in its goal toward becoming a Bicycle Friendly Community from the League of American Bicyclists.
“We have learned that we are well on our way to earning the Bicycle Friendly Community designation,” Kreuser said Wednesday. “Together we can work toward the benchmarks set forth in the report card from the League of American Bicyclists as we set our sights on becoming officially bicycle friendly.”
Kreuser said that designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community is important because it assures county residents that officials take seriously a commitment to providing safe bicycling opportunities. It also is a strong gauge of a county that is a vibrant destination for residents and visitors. “It’s a quality of life and a quality of place indicator,” Kreuser said.
