As part of our BocaFirst Vision Zero Project, we took our Boca Matters video series out of the studio and onto the street to talk to people about what it’s like to get around Boca Raton in something other than a car. In this episode, we went to Boca Raton Addison Mizner Elementary’s Walk, Bike or Roll to School event. Addison Mizner enjoys a high level of participation in walking, biking and rolling to school. I spoke with Holli Sutton who chaired the event for the PTA, City Council Member Marc Wigder and Candidate for City Council in the upcoming March 2024 election Brian Stenberg. We discussed they thought about it and the state of mobility in Boca Raton.
