Bike Infrastructure Plan Virtual Feedback and Listening Session
The City of Plattsburgh will be hosting a third Bike Infrastructure Listening and Feedback session, virtually on Tuesday August 10th at 6PM. The purpose of this event is to gather public feedback on the newly proposed “Bike Friendly Plattsburgh” report created through the Community Development Office. The City is holding this event virtually for community members who want to provide feedback and were unable to attend the previous two feedback sessions on July 11th and July 22nd. Attendees can expect for the Community Development Office to briefly outline the proposed bike plan, discuss phases of implementation and answer the public’s questions. Attendees can voice their feedback and use polling and chat features to share their input.
“We had a very positive turn out at our last two events, mainly from bike enthusiasts in the community. We are hoping that residents who walk, drive or ride in automobiles will join this session and provide their feedback from a different perspective. Creating a sustainable bike infrastructure should include everyone who uses roadways”, says Courtney Meisenheimer, Community Events Coordinator.
The Bike Infrastructure Plan introduces a phased approach to implementation, which would eventually include repainting bike lanes, introducing sharrows, road diets, and changing on-street parking. The City is eager to hear the public’s feedback on how to implement those changes, as well as how to raise the general awareness of how motorists, cyclists and pedestrians can all safely share our city’s roadways.
