Profile Page Enhancements; Bike Rack Hunt Tomorrow!

Taken a look at your Livable Streets profile recently? We’ve added some
handy features.

Profiles now include an activity feed of everything you
do on Livable Streets. Need a quick link to that last page you edited
or discussion message someone sent? Now it’s easily on hand.


You can see everything in one list or divide by pages, discussions, blog posts, and blog comments. Activity in private groups will only be visible to other group members, but you also have the option of making your entire feed private.

Sunday, September 20, 2:30 – 6:30 p.m.
The Change You Want to See gallery

The hunt will be followed at 6:30 by a Streetfilms screening and festivities at the nearby Nook & Cranny Backyard Box (194 S. 2nd St. between Driggs & Roebling).
