Mayor Frank Scott Jr. of Little Rock, Ark., to Speak at #BikeSummit22
The League is excited to announce that Frank Scott Jr., the Mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas, will be joining us as a plenary speaker for the 2022 National Bike Summit, which takes place March 27-30, 2022, and features completely virtual speakers and sessions plus in-person content for those who wish to attend the Summit in Washington, DC.
Mayor Scott will speak virtually on Monday, March 28, 2022. Frank Scott, Jr. made history on Dec. 4, 2018, when he was elected as the City of Little Rock’s 73rd mayor and first popularly elected African American chief executive. Since that day, Mayor Scott has worked to unite diverse neighborhoods into one City and one people, cooperating to expand the economy and improve the quality of life for the people of Little Rock.
As a Bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community since May 2016, Little Rock aims to make streets safer for all users — a mission its Mayor shares. Mayor Frank Scott Jr.’s Mobility Agenda includes an emphasis on improving sidewalks, instituting the complete streets ordinance, and expanding bikeshare, all while directing funds to areas with the highest needs.
We look forward to learning from Mayor Frank Scott Jr. about how a mayor can influence real change in transportation planning and his perspective on how the implementation of investments introduced in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) could help meet the Mobility Agenda and Bicycle Friendly Community goals of Little Rock and communities across the country.
This will be the 23rd annual Bike Summit and in an effort to include as many bike advocates as possible, this year will be a hybrid event with all plenaries and conference sessions as virtual. Join us as we discuss how the bike movement can shape the future for the next generation, from climate change to racial equity.
