    WILMAPCO, in coordination with Cecil County, Maryland departments (MDOT, SHA, MDP), municipalities, cyclists and other stakeholders will develop a Cecil County Bicycle Plan to establish recommendations for improved access and comfort of bicycling. The Plan will map proposed bicycle facilities, include an update of Cecil County recommendations outlined in the 2002 Maryland Bicycle and Pedestrian Access Master Plan, identify where further bicycle investments should be made, and present actions for implementation. It will promote safe and enjoyable bicycling opportunities for commute, recreation, and fitness, and will link to other modes of transportation throughout Cecil County. This Plan will also improve Maryland’s Bicycle Friendly State ranking from the League of American Bicyclists by having county-level bicycle plans.

    The development of this Plan will be guided under the direction of an Advisory Committee that will represent a variety of stakeholders and agencies needed to implement the Plan, such as county and state officials, municipalities, community groups, businesses, and citizens.
