Sign the Petition to Bring Back the WalkRaleigh Signs

We told you about the guerilla Walk Raleigh signs that popped up in January, got a lot of press in February and then were taken down the next day. Luckily, the Raleigh City Council will vote tomorrow (March 6th) to restore the signs to downtown. To help, you can sign this petition below. WalkRaleigh needs 150 more signatures in 1 1/2 hours. Let's do this.

Sign the Walk Raleigh Petition HERE

On Tuesday, March 6 @ 1pm, the Raleigh City Council will vote on whether or not Walk Raleigh will be restored as a pedestrian wayfinding system in downtown Raleigh.

The project has received local, national and international attention, promoting innovation, walking and healthy lifestyles.

We need YOUR HELP to show City Council how supportive the community is for the signs to be re-installed.

Thanks so much for your support!

    These signs make pedestrians aware of how walkable our beautiful city really is and that shows the ease and simplicity in taking a stroll downtown.

    So does it actually mean anything with regards to the City Council to have 1000 signatures, or is it just a number picked by the people that set up the petition? 
    If it doesn’t, it may be best to just go to the meeting, although that defeats the purpose of an online petition.

    Yes! Raleigh needs these signs! Forget other important issues like the economy, looming wars with countries on the other side of the world and the upcoming presidential election. All of our free time and energy should be put into restoring these plastic signs.

    Like Rachel stated. These signs help people to realize that things are close and walking sometimes take just as much time as driving and trying to find a parking space.

    I don’t think the Raleigh City Council really has much say over wars, the global economy, and federal elections.  We can read about them in the news, but many people are more interested in local issues which have some type of direct impact on their lives.

    Sadly, the email about this story just arrived.  So it’s a bit late for me to sign the petition… ;-)
