Spring is in the air! Tell us about your biking and walking…

Portage County is developing a Countywide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and needs your help! An online survey is available to help assess the walking and biking habits of County residents and find out what barriers they face to walking and bicycling more. The brief survey should take no more than 15 minutes and is available until May 31.

The survey is available here: http://tinyurl.com/PoCo-BikePedSurvey.

The interactive map for the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan is also still available! This map allows participants to note on a Google Map where they walk and bike and issues with walking and biking that they encounter in Portage County.

If you haven’t already, please visit the interactive map: http://tinyurl.com/PoCo-BikePedMap.

    Building pedestrian and bicycle facilities dont just add new transportation or recreation options to a community, they bring economic value. This webinar will focus on the economic impact of new or expanded bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

    Presenters Darren Flusche with the League of American Bicyclists, Ginny Sullivan with the Adventure Cycling Association and Mark Wyatt with the Iowa Bicycle Coalition will discuss the latest research highlighting the dollar value bicycle and pedestrian projects bring to a community as well as offer compelling examples of pedestrian and bicycle projects from entire states, to big cities to rural areas.

    This is the second of two webinars being offered jointly by the PBIC and the Bike League. The first presentation, held April 9, focused on funding bicycle and pedestrian projects under MAP-21. The archive of that webinar can be found atwww.walkinginfo.org/webinars.

    PBIC offers free, public Webinars approximately every month. To register for upcoming Webinars and to access archived presentations, please visit http://www.walkinginfo.org/webinars. ****
