Every bicycle project has to start life in a plan.
The Delaware Bicycle Plan (currently being created) is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to get the bicycle improvements your community needs in an official plan. So if you miss this opportunity, your next opportunity may not come around again until 2027!
Does your school age child live less than 3 miles from his or her school but doesn’t have a safe route to bike to school? We want to know (see below). And also check out the upcoming Delaware Bicycle Plan meetings (also below) where you can talk directly to the people putting the plan together. (And let your neighbors know about these meetings. One person demanding a safe route for a child to bicycle to school is a crank. But five people demanding safe bicycle connections for their kids are irresistible!)
Remember: the last Delaware Bicycle Plan was in 2005. You probably don’t want to wait another decade for the next one.
