Hi Bruce. Thanks for posting the meeting notice.
I can't attend but regarding the discussion or projects and priorities: I read in the Medford Transcript last week that Ben Averbook has left the city. For many years he had run the Medford Saving Lives program, which included an annual "Bicycle Rodeo," bike helmet distribution, and other bicycle safety education initiatives.
Since education is going to be part of the new bicycle commission's focus, perhaps it could enhance what had been offered by Medford Saving Lives. It also would be good to ask the mayor what he intends to do with Saving Lives, which I think got at least a small amount of money in the annual budget. The department no longer is listed on the list of departments on the city website.
