Western Baltimore County Bike/Ped Plan Open For Review


January 6th, 2012 | Categories: Programs | Post Comment

A new draft of the Western Baltimore County Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plan is now available for review and comment. The new plan responds to the comments that were submitted on the previous draft, and includes expanded recommendations for pedestrian and bicycle improvements.

The plan is part of a county-wide long-range plan for constructing pedestrian and bicycle improvements. This phase of the plan covers the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th council districts in the more urban area of the county. The plan will guide future improvements to the county’s transportation network to better accommodate access by walking and bicycling. The plan also recommends supportive encouragement, enforcement and education strategies to promote safe travel by these sustainable transportation modes.

View The Western Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plan online

The recommendations for bicycle improvements can also be viewed on an interactive map by selecting the “Bicycle Facilities” tab. The map depicts the recommendations of both the Eastern and Western Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plans. The Eastern Plan was approved by the Baltimore County Council in 2006. After this round of public review, the Western Plan will be submitted to the Baltimore County Planning Board and the County Council for adoption as an amendment to the county’s master plan.

Two informational meetings on the Western Plan will be held so that citizens will have a chance to view the plan and discuss it with county planning staff.

Citizens will have an opportunity to comment on the plan at either of the open houses.  Written comments can also be submitted until January 27, 2012 to Kathy Schlabach, project manager
