B-Active Plan – Recap of June 27 Open House Event materials

Thanks to the 52 attendees and the Birmingham Bicycle Club members for dropping by our Open House event on June 27, 2017 at the Railroad Park Pavilion.

If you missed the event, please click on the link below to view the existing “Level of Comfort” of biking on roads in the region (based on a scale from 1 to 5), view a series of “demand analysis” maps that show key areas that are most likely to attract biking and walking due to list of proximity factors (such as close proximity to employment centers, parks, schools, commercial areas, etc.), and view the infographic results from the Wikimap online mapping tool and the first survey that people took in April through May.

B-Active Plan – Launch of a new short survey (closes end of July)

To help the project team prioritize and refine the input received thus far, we want you to tell us what you consider to be the two most vital connections within our region and the urban core.

The consultant team will plan to return in the Fall to reveal the Draft Regional Active Transportation Network.  More details to come.

The B-Active Plan is intended to help establish a clear vision for short- and long-term projects that are needed to build a safer, more connected, and equitable active transportation system for the region. The Plan will serve as a resource for the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to plan, fund, and ultimately build more bicycle and trail facilities, and will provide guidance for the region’s local municipalities when developing their bicycle and pedestrian elements. The Plan will describe how the region is working together to connect and support active transportation.
