The ideas and recommendations that have been developed throughout the planning process will be on display and members of the planning team will be on-hand to answer questions from the community. A brief presentation will begin at 5:30 pm during the evening sessions.
Everyone with an interest in the future development of trails and bikeways is encouraged to come to the open house, view the recommendations and proposed trails, bike lanes, and routes and ask questions or offer comments in anticipation of submitting the plan for adoption this summer. The first public hearing will be held by the Environmental Planning Commission (EPC) on September 4, 2014 for review and recommendation to the City Council. The planning team is working towards City Council adoption of the Plan in late 2014.
This is the third of three public information sessions that are included as part of the planning process. The first two sessions in 2010 were focused on gathering ideas and input for the future of the City’s bikeway and trail system, and this session will be focused on reporting back on how these ideas and issues have been addressed in the Plan.
The finished facility plan will guide investment, enhancements, and new trails, bike lanes, and routes across the City for the next 20 years or more. The current bikeways and trails system includes over 275 miles of paved and unpaved trails and 343 miles of on-street bicycle facilities. The goals are to improve safety, close gaps along existing corridors, enhance maintenance, increase use of the bikeways and trails network, and improve quality of life in Albuquerque.
Community members who cannot attend the open house may learn more about the planning process and submit comments about the plan online.
