The Birmingham region has exploded over the past few years and has created a better environment for people to be active and enjoy the great outdoors. Railroad Park, the Rotary Trail, Red Mountain Park, Oak Mountain Park, Moss Rock, the Buck Creek Trail, the Dunnavant Valley Trail and other attractions have provided opportunities for walking, running and biking. With this growth comes challenges and the B-Active Plan is here to help! This plan is intended to help establish a clear vision for short-term and long-term projects that are needed to build a safer, more connected and equitable bicycle and trail system for the region.
The B-Active Plan will get input from the community to find out what projects they think are needed. Things that will be considered include: What roads and intersections need bicycle lanes to make you feel safer when commuting by bicycle? How can we increase connectivity to our major parks? What improvements would encourage you to ditch your car keys and walk or bike more often?
The B-Active Plan will kick off the week of April 17th with many opportunities for the public to provide input.
