Background Discussion
  • Manatee Millennial Movement has been awarded a $5,000 grant for Cyclovia Bradenton from the Emerging City Champions Program (Knight Foundation and 8 80 Cities).
  • The Emerging City Champions is a fellowship program for young civic innovators with transformative ideas. They look for future city leaders with creative solutions that will enhance civic engagement, improve mobility, and activate public life in public spaces.
  • Cyclovia Bradenton aims to reclaim the street as an active public space by getting Bradenton citizens out of their cars and into the streets to see how easy and fun it is to walk, bike, skate, skip, or run around our beautiful town.
  • Cyclovia Bradenton attendees will have fun while engaging with Open Streets and Complete Streets philosophies, learning about road safety, sharing ideas for multi-modal improvements, and thinking differently about mobility in Manatee County
  • The event is tentatively scheduled to take place in March 2017.
  • The event will be co-sponsored with the Manatee Millennial Movement & Metropolitan Planning Organization.
  • The grant money will be used for security, marketing and promotions, permits, t-shirts, and other project related incidentals.
