Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission

10 N. Ludlow Street

Suite 700

Courthouse Square - Dayton, OH

4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The meeting will consist of an open house for attendees to review the draft plan document, policy and program recommendations, and maps of proposed bikeways. This is the main opportunity to provide feedback on the DRAFT Bikeways Plan Update. The draft plan will provide an update to the existing regional inventory of bicycle facilities by evaluating, prioritizing and recommending future connecting links. The emphasis will be on creating a complete system of shared-use paths with connecting on-street bikeways. The draft plan includes a vision map that identifies a connected system of bikeways, a new method for evaluating low-stress cycling facilities, and a list of priority projects.  In addition, the draft plan will suggest bicycle-related policies and programs to educate Miami Valley residents about bicycle transportation opportunities.
