The City of Brookhaven is hosting a public meeting on May 19, where residents can participate in developing a Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trail Plan.
“This important effort will help develop a vision for a future bicycle, pedestrian and trail network to be enjoyed by all residents and visitors to the city,” said Ann Marie Quill, who handles public relations for the city.
The plan effort is scheduled to conclude in early 2016 and includes an initial analysis of existing conditions, a determination of future needs, and an implementation plan to guide the city in future decision making.
There will be several opportunities for residents to participate in the development of this plan, including the first public meeting to be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on May 19 at the Lynwood Park Community Center located at 3360 Osborne Road.
This will be the first of three planned meetings throughout the planning effort, covering the following topics:
1. A community preference exercise to determine community preferences for different types of bicycle, pedestrian and trail improvements, which will be discussed from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
2. A formal presentation regarding the plan development from 6 to 6:20 p.m.
3. An interactive exercise to craft an overall vision for a bicycle, pedestrian and trail network from 6:20 to 7:30 p.m.
