Description

On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, pedals in for another conversation with Chris Glasser, Executive Director of Bicycling For Louisville, a community partner of Forward Radio. This time, we focus on state-wide transportation policy and its impact on Louisville. KYTC’s SHIFT plan: In 2016, Gov. Matt Bevin directed the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) to develop a process to better allocate the Commonwealth's limited transportation funds. The Strategic Highway Investment Formula for Tomorrow (SHIFT) was the result (https://transportation.ky.gov/SHIFT). Chris Glasser created an interactive map showing how SHIFT would impact Jefferson County and published it in a May 2019 Insider Louisville article entitled "State SHIFTs Priorities Away From Louisville’s Transportation Master Plan.” You can explore the map at https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=15Aahr75LpSSVkM8T9HJUOe5ybRkq04wk&usp=sharing

We also discuss the potential of a newly elected Democratic governor on state transportation policy and Beshear’s appointment of Jim Grey as the new Transportation Secretary, in spite of an attempted Republican power-grab bill to strip him of the power to name a state Transportation Secretary. More about that is in Marcus Green's in-depth article on WDRB at https://www.wdrb.com/in-depth/bill-would-strip-kentucky-governor-s-power-to-name-state/article_792d0f44-0fa1-11ea-b858-8f5001b2d491.html)

Lastly, we discuss the impact of e-scooters in response to Emma Rubin’s December 4th cover article in the LEO Weekly: Not Just For Fun: The Role Of E-Scooters In Urban Planning: https://www.leoweekly.com/2019/12/not-just-for-fun-the-role-of-e-scooters-in-urban-planning/
