She has a master’s degree in urban planning from University of Illinois Chicago. Ellen also has professional connections in the Bradenton and Sarasota area.
  • Danny Williams is a long time resident of the Sarasota/Manatee metropolitan area; he commutes via bicycle daily through traffic conditions similar to those being examined in this analysis.

He sees family members grappling with safety, accessibility, and financial issues linked to stroads and local development patterns on a daily basis. Danny advocates for safer, more equitable, and more sustainable mobility options for all of us - especially so our seniors can gracefully age-in-place and our kids have real options free from the financial burdens and risks of car dependence.

  • Carl Jones is a local expert who grew up on Lockwood Ridge Road between Honore Avenue and State Route 70. He lived there for fifteen years and is living in that same area again now. Carl decided to participate because he is passionate about infrastructure and development patterns.
