The public is invited to an open house on the draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Capital Plan from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, December 15 at the Jayne Snyder Trails Center at Union Plaza, 21st and "Q" streets.
The draft plan includes an assessment of current conditions for biking and walking in Lincoln and Lancaster County as well as short- and long-range proposals for capital improvements to the biking and walking networks. It also includes suggested priorities for the community to consider for implementing the most useful walking and biking capital projects. Staff will be available to answer questions at the open house.
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Capital Plan is a technical support document to the Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization's 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan that was approved in December 2011. The plan provides additional detail for the implementation of bicycle and pedestrian projects throughout the community as funds become available.
For more information on the open house, call David Cary, Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department, at 402-441-6364. More information on this event and other transportation projects is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: mpo).
