This year the SRLI class has three graduates from the City of San Rafael: Shawn Plate (Finance), Alex Holm (SRPD), and April Miller (Public Works). This year’s class project was focused on bicycle safety. On Saturday May 21st, the SRLI held a Bike the Boulevard event near the recently completed bicycle connection along Francisco Blvd West. Multiple sponsors set up booths to provide education, bike lights, information, and swag to hundreds of bicyclists that utilized the path that day. Public Works Promotions.
