Today, the League of American Bicyclists recognized Zionsville with a Bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) award, joining 61 towns and cities in 27 states with this prestigious award.
With this latest round of new and renewing awardees, there are currently 464 BFCs in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The Bronze level BFC award recognizes Zionsville’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies.
There are five levels of the BFC award – diamond, platinum, gold, silver and bronze, plus an honorable mention category and a no designation level. Only nine other communities in Indiana received a BFC award, with Bloomington being the only Gold level community. Awarded communities must renew their status every four years to ensure that they not only maintain existing efforts, but also keep up with changing technology, national safety standards and community-driven best practices.
“This Bicycle Friendly designation is the product of the Town Council appointed Pathway Advisory Committee that prepared much of the winning application, and the supporting efforts of Town staff including the Parks, Streets, Police and Fire Departments,” said Parks Superintendent Matt Dickey. “Designations like these come from years of hard work and result in making this community an even better place to live and work.”
