Auto-Free Zones, "Pedestrian Malls", Etc.
- Hello All! I'm new. This is my first post.
My name is James R. Martin, and I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.
I've renewed my interest and pro-bicycle/pro-pedestrian activism
after seeing a pedestrain hit and killed in a crosswalk near the
Santa Fe plaza about two weeks ago. A movement has begun here in
Santa Fe to close the plaza to all automobile traffic. I support
this action, and would love to have supportive ideas and help of any
I need ideas on organizing, promotion of the idea, and knowlede as
to what I can say to persuade the yet unpersuaded that an auto-free
plaza would be terrific for the city. What can I tell shop owners
and managers who are in the plaza who might fear a loss in business?
