Sara Blum, President of Acorn Marketing, marketing for growth, was appointed to the Shelburne Bicycle/Pedestrian and Paths Committee at the June 25 Shelburne Selectboard meeting by a unanimous vote. “I joined the committee because I’m invested in Shelburne. Cyclists tend to do more for the local economy [than car riders] so more of that would be great for the town,” Blum said.
The Bike and Pedestrian Paths Committee is responsible for the planning and implementation of a path system linking key destinations in Shelburne with surrounding communities. “Shelburne’s infrastructure is not terribly bike friendly…. My hope is to have an effect on both the infrastructure and on the attitudes of both cyclists and drivers,” Blum explained.
