This 20th Annual National Bike Summit comes at a time of disruptive innovation and change, and communities are on the front line. As our communities evolve, community leaders in the public and private sector are thinking through their role in building healthy, equitable and resilient communities of the future- and active transportation will play a role.  This panel will feature that change from elected officials in Arlington, VA's Crystal City  which is preparing for the arrival of Amazon; and from St. Petersburg, FL which recently adopted a 'Health in All Policies' ordinance.
