Hi Friends,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the perfect, summer weather in Ames over the last week.  Tuesday's meeting was fairly short at just around two hours with only a couple of agenda items getting much discussion.  It was interesting discussion though, with the City Council divided on a proposed student apartment development in West Ames.  See below for details.

Thanks for reading and have a safe and fun Fourth of July.

Hi Friends,

I love Ames in the summer.  The town seem a little sleepier, things move a little slower, and friends and family can gather at a gamut of activities.  The sun hangs on till well past 9PM and even after a three hour City Council meeting the day still feels full of opportunity.  I hope everyone is enjoying summer in Ames as much as I do.

Thanks for reading,

Hello All,

I hope everyone enjoyed the first day of Bike to Work Week.  It was a gorgeous morning and there was a great turn out at City Hall for the City sponsored commuter breakfast.  Thank you, City of Ames, for hosting this for the third straight year.  There are breakfast opportunities all week and the list can be found on the Ames Bicycle Coalition Facebook page.

Greetings.

It was a chilly Tuesday but that didn't prevent the City from plowing through a very full agenda containing multiple presentations, proclamations and regular business items.  One proclamation in particular is near and dear to my heart, namely the one declaring May Bike Month and May 15-19 Bike to Work Week for  2017.  Once again this year the Ames Bicycle Coalition has worked hard to encourage participation in these two nationally observed bicycle programs with a host of local events throughout the month of May.  See the ABC Facebook page for a full list of events including several free breakfasts (including City Hall again this year) to help fuel your morning bike commute during bike to work week May 15-19. #donutdriveyourcar.
