Econ 919: How bike paths improve life

Jan 25, 2019

    This week: if you doubt “livability” has become a prime factor for companies and professionals seeking a new home, just look at the ways cities all over the nation — and Canada — used to woo Amazon’s so-called “Headquarters 2.” Livability with recreation of a high caliber was front and center of pitches to the World’s Biggest Company.

  The City of Kenai and BIK&S, Biking in Kenai & Soldotna, are seeking your assistance in securing a grant to help fill in the pedestrian pathway gap on Bridge Access Road in Kenai. City Planner Elizabeth Appleby and BIK&S' Kaitlin Vadla discuss the project with KDLL's Jay Barrett on this week's Kenai Conversation.

Fiddler Liz Baylor says trying to figure out what to call the music they make has been a “major hitch” since the band members started playing together six years ago.
