Our Mission

To proactively engage with Local, County, State, and Federal government and agencies and civic coalitions advocating to ensure the design, execution, and maintenance of roads, bike lanes, rails to trails, and multi-use paths support a safe, active lifestyle and high quality of life. To inform the ECCL Executive Management Team and make actionable, timely recommendations to support or oppose possible action.
