Car-free Fremont is the brainchild of Sarah Kavage and Robert Zverina, Fremont
resident artists who enjoy their life in Seattle without a car.
Sarah Kavage holds a Masters Degree in Urban Planning from the University
of Washington, and is currently a transportation planner for the Washington
State Department of Transportation. Before moving to Seattle, she volunteered
for Transportation Alternatives in New York City and founded South Brooklyn
Recycle-A-Bicycle, an afterschool bike repair program at I.S. 142 in Brooklyn.
Way back in 1994, she organized high school students and residents of a
low-income housing project to design and complete a community mural project
in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
Robert Zverina holds degrees from Cornell University and the City
University of New York, where he taught freshman writing classes for three
years. He is the webmaster for the International Inline Skating Association
and International Police Mountain Bike Association, two non-profit organizations
which promote non-motorized transportation. He also directs communications
for AllWalks, a network of neighborhood walking clubs. In his spare time,
he restores vintage bicycles and volunteers his metalworking skills on the
restoration. Four wheels bad, two wheels good.
The paradox of our time in history is
that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower
viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less. -George
