FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 13, 2017
The push to develop a comprehensive bicycle master plan is moving ahead and City of Kansas City, Missouri, officials want to collect as much public feedback as possible for what promises to be a much-improved Bike KC.
City planners are inviting citizens to attend at least one of four public meetings set to discuss the new plan and offer suggestions to make it better. The agenda for these meetings is identical, so choose one that fits your schedule:
- April 18th, Tuesday, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Avila University’s Whitfield Conference Room, 11901 Wornall Rd.
- April 25th, Tuesday, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Southeast Community Ctr., 4201 E 63rd St.
- April 27th, Thursday, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Northland Cathedral, 101 NW 99th St.
- May 6th, Saturday, 9 a.m. to noon at Foreign Language Academy, 114 E Armour Blvd.
Public participation is essential to revamping Bike KC. Citizens who attend these meetings will learn background on the plan and existing network and will be able to offer direct feedback to the architects crafting the improved road map for city cycling.
This is the first set of public meetings for the Bike KC update. Another set to report details on progress and solicit more feedback will be held this summer. Check out the online survey, interactive map and other cool features about BikeKC.
The City already is leveraging $2.3 million in federal transportation funds with local capital improvement funds for several on-street bike facilities slated for 2017 and 2018 construction.
