ACTION ALERT! Weigh In on “Your Path to Austin” Now!

October 14, 2013

We want to let you know about an important initiative underway in Austin. It is called “Your Path to Austin,” which will update the City’s Bicycle Master Plan and create a new Urban Trails Plan. These plans will help us achieve a connected and protected active transportation network and increase opportunities for people to safely bike around town, regardless of age or biking ability.

To help make sure these planning efforts reflect the goals and priorities of community members, the City has created an online survey to gather important input about bicycling experiences and preferences. Please take a few minutes now and complete the survey.

You can also visit the project’s website to learn more about the innovative strategies being explored to create a connected and protected network, including the use of Cycle Tracks –on-street bicycle lanes that are physically protected from motor traffic and separate from sidewalks, and Urban Trails –shared use paths used by bicyclists, walkers and runners for both recreation and transportation purposes.

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more and weigh-in with your input at public events on the evenings of November 12, 13, and 14. In the meantime, we hope you’ll take a few minutes to complete the survey and make sure Your Path to Austin reflects your views!

Please share this information on to others you think would be interested!
