Choose a Path for Eugene's Future
Come give your input on the future of Eugene’s transportation system at the Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan Open House next week.
What would make walking or biking to school easier for you and your family? Are there safe cycling routes near your home? Are there missing sidewalks near your school? What are the crossings like between one point and the other? Would you like to see the City connect our great path system with safe, comfortable, and separated facilities like cycle tracks and bike boulevards? What kind of transportation system would make the choice to walk or bike as easy as choosing to drive?
Want to come and give some answers to these questions? Then come to the Ped/Bike Master Plan Open House and review the City’s draft pedestrian and bicycle system plan, policy recommendations, facilities design toolkit, project costs and potential funding sources. The session is scheduled for Thursday, March 3rd, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church Parish Center at 10th and Charnelton in downtown Eugene. Free valet bike parking will be provided and transit is only a block away at LTD’s downtown station (see map below).
If you can’t make the event I highly encourage you to go to the project website www.eugenepedbikeplan.org and give comments. There is a great map input tool that not only allows you to place a comment at a specific location but if someone else has already marked a spot you can “agree” or “disagree” with it.
Tell the city what would make the safe routes to your school!
Editors Note: There is a Facebook group that was started back in April as part of an April Fools joke called “Connect the Paths”. It will now be a tool to encourage the City to adopt a strong Ped/Bike Master Plan with separated family friendly utilities. Join the group here: Connect the Paths
