The community is invited to an open house public workshop on Tuesday, November 1, anytime between 4 and 7 p.m. The workshop will introduce the plan’s vision and goals, the proposed county bicycle network, bicycle crash data, and other improvements such as bike parking. The workshop will also include poster displays, maps, comment sheets, and other tools for the public to use to tell us their thoughts on how to improve the countywide and local bicycle networks. WILMAPCO and other staff will be available to answer questions and listen to comments.

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.
Bicyclist’s participation is critical, so please visit the project webpage HERE, which includes the plan’s Scope of Work and a Bicycle Field Worksheet. For more information about the Cecil County Bicycle Plan, or if you would like to join the Bicycle Advisory Committee, please contact Tamika Graham at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline to provide feedback is November 14, 2011.
