Columbia’s Daily Dish (May 1, 2009)

A smattering of links about Columbia’s growth and development:

• Bike, Walk & Wheel kicks off with Flat Branch celebration (Columbia Daily Tribune) — For the eighth year in a row, Mayor Darwin Hindman is challenging Columbia residents to leave their cars behind for one week. It all starts tomorrow, where the city and GetAbout Columbia staff will host a kickoff event for Bike, Walk & Wheel Week, which promotes non-motorized transportation, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Flat Branch Park, 101 S. Fourth St.
