Letter to the editor

The Central Peninsula Change Club would like to thank the community for helping us celebrate bicycle safety at the July 4th festivities in Kenai.

We specifically wanted to recognize the improvements on Bridge Access Road and the Warren Ames Bridge with the bicycle icons that have been painted in the shoulder and the posting of “Bike Route” signs.

We would like send out a thank you to the team the Change Club worked with to make these improvement happen- former Senator Tom Wagoner, Mayors: Mike Navarre (Borough), and Pat Porter, (Kenai), DOT Superintendant Carl High, DOT Brian Gabriel, Kenai City Manager, Rich Koch, Senator Wagoner’s staff, Amy Seitz, Parks and Rec., Bob Frates, People Promoting Wellness Regina Theisen, and cyclist/high school student Jordan Theisen.

In addition we thank Beemun’s and Safe Kids Kenai Peninsula Coalition for the bicycle and helmets (respectively) they co-sponsored for our celebration. We appreciate our local businesses and coalitions helping the Change Club to achieve our goal of safely increasing physical activity in our community.
