05 Jan Meet HPD Board Chair Jim Chard
Why did you get involved in Human Powered Delray?
It’s a huge opportunity to make a difference in the quality of life and the character of Delray.
Where is your favorite place to walk or ride in Delray Beach?
The alleys and canal banks, of course.
What city or project do you consider to be a good pedestrian or cycling model for Delray to learn from or emulate?
High Line in NYC.
HPD is working on several initiatives. What is the most important improvement you think Delray needs to make to its pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure or culture?
Delray needs a Master Plan that incorporates an alternative transportation network for bike and ped throughout the city, easy access to the beaches, intermodal connection to Tri-Rail, and Greenways for hours of unrestricted, healthy walking and biking. Thanks to HPD and city staff and officials, such a Master Plan now exists and will be incorporated into the Comprehensive Plan.
