    Newark Bicycle Plan Public Workshop – December 6, 4-7 p.m., Newark Municipal Building, 220 Elkton Rd, Newark. Kick-off meeting for the development of the Newark Bicycle Plan.

    This is a “Drop In” event, where you can come by anytime between 4 PM and 7 PM and participate for 10 to 15 minutes, or hand around and talk to other people interested in bicycle planning. The City of Newark will also be using Twitter during the Workshop to give updates, so you can participate that way, as well, if you can’t make the workshop.
