Public Meetings on Draft Bike/Ped Plan for Philadelphia

Today and tomorrow, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission will unveil its draft Pedestrian/Bicycle Plan at two Open Houses.  The full plan with recommended new policies and maps of proposed bike lanes is not yet online, but a two pager of "Vision, Goals, and Measures" is available to review.

Please come to one of the two Open Houses to learn more about what is envisioned for how Philadelphia will improve bicycle and pedestrian "facilities" throughout South Philadelphia, Center City, Lower and Upper North Philadelphia, and Northwest (see map of the study area for this phase of the plan; other parts of Philadelphia will be evaluated in a second and third phase during 2010.)

The plan will be open for public comment until May 11th.  You can email comments on the proposed plan.

April 19th, 6:30 PM - William Penn Charter School - 3000 West School House Lane, East Falls

April 20th, 6:30 PM - One Parkway, 1515 Arch Street, Room 18022, Center City

Will the two presentations be the same, or will the one today focus on the NW/Upper North Philly and tomorrow's focus on CC/SP/Lower North?

The same presentation will be made at both meetings. Thanks for inquiring!
