Bikeways Open House

This is mostly for local folk who ride on public roadways.

I got a notice from Annette Harper at ACHD about this open house.

The particulars, according to the flyer:

Roadways to Bikeways
Public Open House

August 9, 2007, 4:30-7:30pm
Covenant Presbyterian Church
4848 N. Five Mile Road

The Ada County Highway District (ACHD) needs your help preparing a county-wide master plan for roadway bicycle facilities. ACHD is gathering information on critical gaps, opportunities for connectivity, important routes, areas of concern and more.

At the open house learn about the Roadways to Bikeways Plan, review the results of the bicycle users survey and bicycle counts, provide input on the gaps in the existing bicycle system and help identify opportunities and constraints.

Click HERE to link to ACHD's website for more information.

I'd encourage anybody who can make it, to do so. At the very least, it will demonstrate an interest on the part of the public. And ideally, you might be able to help our planners be aware of what you do or don't like about how they're doing their job and spending your tax dollars.

I wonder what the thinking was for the meeting location? Smack dab in the middle of the highway district?

I got an e-mail, too, Bikeboy. Glad to see you have it posted here. Not sure if I can make that or not, but I'm going to try.
