Portage County Bike/Ped Plan: Steering committees meet Monday 7/8

Both the Urban and the Rural Steering Committees for the Portage County Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Project will be meeting on Monday July 8. These meetings are open to the general public.

Both meetings will be held in Conference Room 5 of the Portage County Annex Building (1462 Strongs Ave). The Urban Steering Committee will meet at 4PM, and the Rural Steering Committee will meet at 6PM.

Agendas and related attachments are available in a post on the Portage County Bike/Ped Plan website. Links to these packets are provided below:

The agendas for both meetings include two key items.

One key item is a review and discussion of work done to date with regard to Safe Routes to School. For each K-12 school in the county, assessments have been completed and recommendations have been compiled. I presume any general overview will be the same at both meetings, but any specific schools discussed will differ as is relevant to each committee.

The other key item is discussion of a draft version of goals, objectives, and policies for the bike/ped plan. The version included in the packets are a starting point to stimulate discussion about what should eventually appear in the final plan document.

Those who attend these meetings will likely hear much lively discussion and should also get an opportunity to contribute their own opinions to the mix. I encourage all Poky Pedalers with interest in what ends up in the final plan document to attend one (or both) meetings on Monday.

For those unable to attend, I’ll post a summary of the two meetings next week. Check back on my blog around Wednesday to read that.
