Special City Council meeting

Newark Municipal Building
220 S Main Street
Newark, DE 19711
On Monday evening, Newark City Council will re-consider the proposed “Charles Emerson Bridge” project, which would build a bicycle and pedestrian bridge over White Clay Creek just west of Paper Mill Road to extend Newark’s growing pathway network north of the city.
In bicycle-friendly Newark (the city is one of only two cities in Delaware that have been designated as bicycle-friendly communities) both of the area’s state legislators – State Representative Paul Baumbach and State Senator Dave Sokola – are stepping up with funding pledges for the project totaling $150,000.
Public comment will be permitted. If you live in Newark and are passionate about helping make Newark more bicycle-friendly, this is a time to show up and be seen and heard from.
