Pete Stidman joins HSH as our Active Transportation Leader.
September 22, 2015
We are happy to announce that Pete Stidman, formerly the executive director of the Boston Cyclists Union, has joined the Howard Stein Hudson team as Active Transportation Leader. Pete has been at the forefront of key bicycle infrastructure and policy projects in the City of Boston since 2010, when he founded the Bike Union. His suggestions for improvements have helped guide work for cities and towns on the multi-modal improvements along Commonwealth Avenue in Allston, Route 9 in Brookline, Beacon Street in Somerville, and the Arborway in Jamaica Plain.
His work as part of a team analyzing bike crash data helped lay the foundation for stronger bike infrastructure and policies in Boston—such as Mayor Martin Walsh’s recent commitment to Vision Zero—a goal to eliminate roadway fatalities, and also Boston’s first-in-the-nation ordinance requiring all trucks that contract with the city to have sideguards to protect pedestrians and cyclists from contact with the truck’s rear wheels.
Pete’s goals to include accommodation for all modes of travel in transportation and development projects is in line with those of the many cities and towns of the Commonwealth we work with. His contribution to the team as a creative problem solver, a tactful public involvement specialist, and a true believer in cities for people builds on a growing team of Active Transportation professionals at Howard Stein Hudson.
