Symposium Success!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

The Non-Motorized Transportation Symposium was a success!

It was incredible to connect in person, share ideas, and build momentum towards City and State projects that will improve the walker and biker experience in Homer, creating a more neighborly, vibrant and safe community. While looking at maps of Homer we brainstormed how each road way and trail system could be altered to make it easier for people to walk or bike when they would normally drive. Exciting conversations were had at every station and were heard loud and clear by City staff, Council members, and Borough Assembly members.

If you missed the Symposium or would like to weigh in more, you can still add your comments to City's Transportation Plan.

Visit: to learn more about the Transportation Plan and submit your own ideas either by filling out the survey or adding your comments directly to the map of Homer.

During the Symposium participants dot voted on their priority roadways for incorporating sidewalks, paths and trails. Kachemak Drive received the majority of interest, while sections of Main Street, Ben Walters, Heath Street and Upper Reber Trail also garnered many dots.

And already things are happening! At the next City Council meeting Monday Oct. 10th Homer Council will consider a proposal from Public Works and Economic Development Staff to add the Homer All Ages & Abilities Pedestrian Pathway (HAP Loop) to the comprehensive plan. Developed in consultation with the Independent Living Center shortly after the Homer Non-motorized Transportation Symposium, the project would bring connectivity to Homer’s central trail system, give compelling justification for the Svedlund and Main Street sidewalk projects and could potentially leverage Federal Highway Administration funding through the State’s upcoming Transportation Alternatives Program. This project is a direct result of Homer Drawdown organizing, and this is just the beginning!

Stay engaged and join us at our next monthly virtual meeting coming up Wednesday Oct. 19th @ 6pm where we will spend our time in breakout rooms developing projects goals that we can accomplish over the next year!
