Edmond Holds Bicycle Master Plan Open House

Sorry for the short notice, but I missed this one somehow.  However, tonight (March 8th) , the City of Edmond will kick off its bicycle master plan development process with an open house:

City of Edmond invites you to participate in the Bicycle Master Plan Open House from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 8 in the Downtown Community Center. The Bicycle Master Plan will identify a network of connected bicycle facilities that will serve all areas of the city. It will also communicate and prioritize recommended infrastructure improvements, provide implementation strategies and recommend policies and facility design practices that enhance the comfort and safety of bicyclists.

City Staff and the City’s consultant, Kimley-Horn & Associates Inc., will be in attendance to hear ideas for making Edmond a ‘bicycle friendly’ community. Participants of this initial open house will have the opportunity to actively:

  • Review and comment on Plan goals and objectives
  • Provide ideas for future bike routes and other improvements
  • Identify barriers to bicycling

At 7 p.m., there will be a special presentation that will provide an overview of the planning process so that participants can understand the project schedule, and additional opportunities for providing input that will direct the development of the Plan.Residents are asked to provide their input for the development of the plan.
