DOTD planning meet open to public input: Wed, July 23, 5 pm, Broadmoor Library

Loren Demerath writes, "I´ll be in the air flying home as this meeting happens, but I sure wish I could go. Hopefully Maurice´ll be there, and maybe you, April, Ian, Sally and others too."

In response to increased interest and demand for walkable and bikeable transportation options, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has begun a planning effort to update their Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan.

The purpose of this effort is to review and recommend POLICY changes to address the needs of all the users of the transportation system, and by doing so, to reduce pedestrian and bicycle crashes across Louisiana. While this plan is not intended to result in a map of a statewide network, or a list of projects, the goal is to lay the groundwork to facilitate a statewide system which accommodates everyone who uses it.

You are invited to participate by attending one of our upcoming Public Meetings:

Wed, July 23rd, 5 - 6:30PM
Broadmoor Library
1212 Captain Shreve Drive
