BIKE EVENT PLANNED: The Trumbull County Creating Healthy Communities Coalition is hosting a bike audit workshop 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Trumbull County Combined Health District, 176 Chestnut Ave. NE, Warren.

The goal of the event is to make Warren a safer community for bicyclists by addressing safety on streets and proper infrastructure. Residents, local leaders, transportation officials and others will survey and rate nearby streets, discuss findings and follow through to help people of all ages in Warren get where they need and want to go.

Bikers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate. Participants should bring their own bikes and wear appropriate attire for weather conditions that day.

Results of the survey will be shared with elected officials, policy makers, municipal planners and others. For information visit
