YOU ARE INVITED!
City of Fort Worth – Bicycle Transportation Study Public Workshop
Where: LMRA, River Pavilion, 3400 Bryant Irvin Rd. Fort Worth, Texas
When: Monday, November 5, 2007
The LMRA Bicycle Club will be hosting the first of four Public Workshops given by the City of Fort Worth Transportation and Public Works Dept.
Don Koski, Senior Planner with the City of Fort Worth, will be presenting plans for city-wide bicycle transportation development. These plans will incorporate feedback received from the online Bicycle Transportation Questionnaire.
Bicycling plays a major part in the solution to high prices of gasoline, rising health problems and cleaner air in many major cities and metropolitan areas across our country. Your input is necessary in the efforts being put forth to help Fort Worth increase bicycle facilities across the city and in becoming a leader in bicycling as a mode of transportation.
The leaders of the City of Fort Worth are actively involved in researching ways to include bicycling in the city’s overall transportation plan. City representatives understand there are citizens (cyclists and non-cyclists) who are interested in cycling as a method of travel through the City and want safer cycling access to enable such travel. Your presence at this meeting further enhances to these representatives that cycling is important to everyone.
All cyclists, past, present and future, as well as family and friends of cyclists are encouraged to attend this workshop. If you know of people who do not ride, but would like to; people who would like to commute to work, but are unable to – we want to hear from them. We want to know what their concerns are.
Your input is needed!
Please join Mr. Koski and the City of Fort Worth in their efforts to improve bicycling as a mode of transportation throughout the city and surrounding areas.
