Dallas and the Bike Queen

When the Friends of the Katy Trail helped lead a feasibility study to improve the bicycle and pedestrian connections between the Trail and downtown, the consulting firm hired was Alta Planning+Design out of Portland, Ore. The principal and founder of Alta is Mia Birk, who personally worked on the design of what has become known as the Katy Trail-Arts Loop Connection. Here's a great story about how Birk became the expert she is, and how Dallas is on her list of cities to convert.
