Norte Clubhouse at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center
1213 W. Civic Center Dr., Traverse City
Join the Grand Traverse Humanists for a walking and optional biking tour with Ty Schmidt of Norte! We’ll gather at Norte’s clubhouse at the Grand Traverse Civic Center (a small building near the playground at the south end of the park).
Ty will take us on a 45 minute walking tour of the park to learn more about Norte’s work on the recently approved Civic Center master plan which features a new Bike Education Center. There will be an optional “slow roll” bike ride at 7:45 to see some of the new Safe Routes To School infrastructure being built in the surrounding neighborhoods.
Norte’s mission is to build stronger, better connected, and more walk/bike-friendly communities by empowering the young and young at heart. Norte is raising awareness and promoting best practice infrastructure, progressive policies, and people-first design that advances complete streets, traffic calming, and more equitable access to encourage a happier, healthier and stronger community.
