  • Become part of a network that helps each other and draw on experts who can help you implement projects!

  • Connect you with other partners and organizations leading Active Living initiatives across the county.
  • Provide use of “Share the Road” (sharrow) pavement marking stencils.
  • Help with advocacy efforts for complete streets in your community.

What members say about being on Sage:

  • “Being a member of SAGE gives more credence to what I’m saying as an individual when I’m talking to people. It’s not just me. It’s a whole group. There’s a backing for this idea of active living.” ~ Marie Jones Watts, Community Member
  • “It’s about what we can share. It’s about putting our heads together and saying we can work this out and make this thing happen. Plus it’s just fun.” ~ Nancy Edwards, Genesee County Park & Recreation.
