Dallas city councilmembers Delia Jasso and Pauline Medrano received scholarships from Bike Texas to attend the 2011 Velo City Conference in Seville, Spain. Only ten councilmembers from around the nation received scholarships so it’s very exciting to see Dallas earning two spots. They arrive Tuesday and will get a chance to hear a favorite speaker of BFOC, Gil Penalosa, who led some of the most pivotal changes in public space/bike infrastructure in Bogota, Colombia.
We got a chance to meet up with Mrs. Jasso before she was heading out and she’s agreed to send us images and updates from the conference so that we can post to the blog. Stay tuned!
