Day 333: Bike Louisville’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Public Forums

2 12 2010

I think the head cold from hell is on it’s way out. My fever broke during the night so I’m starting to feel a bit more human again. Still not much energy, but hopefully I’m back to normal before the weekend.

Early next week, Bike Louisville is holding a Pedestrian and Bicycle Public Forum to review the 20-year pedestrian and bicycle master plan for Louisville. The Bike Master Plan recommends new bicycling projects, bike programs and sets implementation plans through 2030. The forums are being held by Metro Public Works; StepUp Louisville (the city’s pedestrian program) and Bike Louisville. The public is encouraged to attend and provide input into the Master Plan. The plan includes ideas that have been in development since the last bike summit. The bike portion of the Master Plan involves two main goals:

  1. To increase bicycling activity throughout all parts of Louisville by making it a fun, comfortable, and accessible mode of travel between 2010 and 2030
  2. To simultaneously reduce the number of cyclists killed and injured in crashes with motor vehicles.

The goals of the Pedestrian Master Plan are:

  1. To improve and expand current pedestrian deficiencies—by preparing a capital improvement process that enables Louisville to double the pedestrian facility network through retrofitting and expanding current deficient sidewalk and pedestrian crossing locations between 2010 and 2030
  2. To simultaneously reduce the rate of pedestrian crashes by half between 2010 and 2030.

I plan to attend one of the forums. Several dates and times are available:

December 6
5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Location: Whitehall House and Gardens, 3110 Lexington Road

December 7
7- 9 p.m.
Location: Fern Creek Community Center, 6104 Bardstown Road

December 9
7-9 p.m.
Location: Shawnee Golf Course Club House, 460 Northwestern Parkway

Come out and share your ideas and listen to what the city has planned for cyclists and pedestrians for the next 20 years. These are the final public forums before the Metro Council puts the issues and ideas to a vote.

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!

Thanks Tom. Feeling much better tonight. I’m planning to come to the Monday night forum on the way home from work. If I can’t get off work in time for that one, I’ll shoot for one of the others. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well.
