Transportation Department - Aug. 9, 2018
Consultants updating the city's bicycle master plan will present their recommendations and collect feedback at a public input session from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, at the Enterprise Center, 1922 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
A presentation on the proposed recommendations will be held at the start of the meeting. Afterwards, attendees will be able to view the recommendations in detail, ask questions and provide their thoughts to DOT staff.
Detailed maps and charts will be available for inspection, showing specific streets and the type of improvement (e. g. bike lanes) the consultants recommend for each. Computers also will be available for viewing the proposed recommendations and leaving comments.
The recommendations were developed based on input from the first public meeting held in February, roadway analysis and guidance by the Bicycle Master Plan steering committee members.
Residents who cannot attend the meeting can view the recommendations and leave their thoughts online at WSBikePLAN.com.
The previous bicycle master plan, adopted in 2005, is being updated to reflect recent changes to development and traffic patterns and to take advantage of new ways to accommodate bicycles, such as buffered bike lanes and cycle tracks, that have been developed over the past decade. As with the current plan, the updated master plan will set priorities for bicycle policies and infrastructure improvements.
The city will provide auxiliary aids and services under the Americans with Disabilities Act for disabled persons who want to participate in this meeting. Anyone requiring special services or the assistance of a Spanish interpreter should contact Adolfo Briceno at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-734-1225 as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made.
