City Invites Residents' Input on Bike/Pedestrian Issues Via 'Virtual' Open House
    
SALT LAKE CITY – Mayor Ralph Becker and City Transportation Director Robin Hutcheson invite residents to weigh-in on recommendations under consideration as part of the current update of the citywide Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan.


Based on nearly 1,000 responses to an online survey and hundreds of comments received at events around the city over the summer, preliminary recommendations have been developed for the future of walking and bicycling in Salt Lake City over the next twenty years.  

The Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan Update, a project of Salt Lake City's Transportation Division, will provide a blueprint for the development of bikeways, paths and trails, pedestrian crossings and education/enforcement programs.
 
A virtual version of the open house, including the preliminary recommendations, will be available through Dec. 1 for public input on the project website at http://walkbikeslc.com/.  
 
All public input will be incorporated in a draft master plan document, which will be available for review over the winter, prior to formal hearings and adoption by the City Council.
