Public Comment needed to ensure Bike/pedestrian facilities!

Stop by the Transportation Planning Open House to voice your support for Bikes and Pedestrians in our community!
Your voice is critical to continuing support for our trails!
MONDAY, March 19, 2012 from 4 PM – 6 PM
Citizens Square - Omni Room (Room #045)

These are two INDOT road projects where we should have sidewalks, but none are currently planned: But we all know that they are necessary to make our great City an even better place to live.

1.  The State is not including a sidewalk on the north side of SR930/Coliseum and the south side of Coliseum where we don’t have the Rivergreenway.  

IPFW and Ivy Tech are along this section of Coliseum and sidewalks make sense.  

2.  The State should consider adding sidewalks to “U S 27/ Lima Rd at Clinton Street north to SR 930/Coliseum Blvd,” basically Lima Rd between Clinton and Coliseum.    These sidewalks would connect with the future Pufferbelly Trail.  It would be great if they put in an 8 or 10 ft wide trail on the west side of Lima between Fernhill and Ice Way to make a shorter connection for trail users.  

The State takes public comment very seriously and any attendance you all can give would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the short notice but I just heard about this.  Hope to see you all there!
