Snow Day in the Lehigh Valley
Happy snow day, all. Even public transportation can’t get you to work today, because LANTA has suspended bus service for the day.
In case you are looking for something to do this fine winter day, I have a few suggestions:
1) Check out this Smart Growth BC research report, “Promoting Public Health Through Smart Growth.”
2) Actually, poke around the entire Smart Growth BC Healthy Communities page. It has a ton of resources and short articles (such as a blurb outlining the connection between land-use planning and health).
3) Visit RenewLV’s Contact Your Elected Official page to let your county legislators know that you support the establishment of a Lehigh Valley Health Department (a regional public health department). Once at this page, you can write your officials an e-mail (we even provide sample text – click on the e-mail link) without having to leave your seat. Let the elected officials know that ensuring the health and safety of Lehigh Valley’s residents is a core function of local government! (It’s a great snow day activity).
If you must travel somewhere today, please take caution. Try winter cycling (I’m half-joking).
