Pathways group to focus on planet-friendly travel

Friends of Pathways this week announced a new evolution for the organization. It has a new and updated mission: “supporting a vibrant community by promoting sustainable transportation and healthy recreation in Jackson Hole.” The new directive reflects growing community priorities for decreasing traffic congestion and augmenting modes of healthy and planet-friendly travel. “The mission statement addendum comes at an exciting time for Friends of Pathways. With the imminent completion of Path22 and other milestones that have contributed to a sustainable trails and pathways network, it’s a good time to take the foundations of the organization to the next level” offers Executive Director Katherine Dowson. “Our new mission still encompasses trails and pathways while recognizing the important role that sustainable transportation and healthy recreation play in our community and quality of life." This summer, Friends of Pathways will pursue its mission with the Commuter Choice Challenge, Skyline Trail construction and other trail projects, and work to develop a permanent Bike Share program. *photo h/t David J Swift / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
