Denver Public Works is proud to announce that Emily Snyder, Bicycle and Pedestrian Project Manager for the department, has been named one of two 2013 Professionals of the Year for the Public Sector by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP).
APBP is a national organization whose mission is to grow the pedestrian and bicycle profession and its influence by facilitating the exchange of professional and technical knowledge, elevating practitioners’ skills and defining the field.
