Thank you for your e-mail. I am always happy to hear from my neighbors in the 5th district.
We now know that urban planning has impacts that go far beyond aesthetics all the way to public health. I agree that Huntsville pedestrians and bicyclists are unnecessarily exposed to risk on our streets and Alabama as a whole is ranked 50th in this category. As a member of Congress, I will support the effort to encourage cities and communities to adopt Complete Streets to improve safety, public health, and the general welfare.
Thank you again for contacting me and I hope you will contact me in the future with any questions, concerns, or comments.
