Rochester is planning a network of bicycle boulevards to connect destinations throughout the city and give residents a safer bike commute. The plan is being developed by the City of Rochester, in partnership with the New York State Department of Transportation, Monroe County, Rochester Cycling Alliance, and Genesee Transportation Council.
If you’d like to hear more about this project and provide input, please attend the first public meeting tomorrow:
Tuesday, Feb. 11 @ 6pm
Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County NY
Kate Gleason Auditorium
115 South Avenue
The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the project, share findings regarding existing conditions, and solicite suggestions from the public regarding desired routes, destinations, and other priorities. Following a brief presentation by the project consultants, attendees will organize into work groups that will identify and prioritize potential bicycle boulevard routes. A discussion of work group findings and simulation of a potential bicycle boulevard route will follow the breakout session.
The meeting is open to the public. Members of the public who are unable to attend the meeting but would like to submit comments may send them to the Project Manager, Erik Frisch (firstname.lastname@example.org), by Friday, February 21, 2014.
