Ride of Silence participants on May 19th are encouraged to attend Newark’s Transportation Planning Workshop just prior to the event, located nearby at the Municipal Building on the corner of Elkton and Apple road. The city is seeking community feedback about issues and opportunities for all modes, including the non-motorized. Attend at your convenience between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to share your ideas about what future transportation improvements are most needed, including bicycle-friendly infrastructure and complete streets implementation. The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about the current status of the 1998 plan and provide ideas for its update. A Newark Synchro model will be on display, showing a graphic simulation of how the transportation network functions today.
Newark recently received a Bronze Bicycle-Friendly Communities award, however, this is only the beginning. It is critical bicyclists attend, and have a say in shaping the Future of Transportation in Newark.
