Public Input Sought On Camden County Bike and Trails Plan

Residents of Camden County will have a chance to have input on the future of multi-use trails in the county on October 25th.

The Camden County Bicycling and Multi-Use Trails Master Plan will guide the implementation of multi-use trails and on-road bicycle facilities in Camden County. The proposed routes will connect county residents to greenways and trails, as well as enhance opportunities to walk or bike to schools, parks, shops, and employment centers. The final plan should also better define the county's portion of the The Circuit regional trails plan.

The public can bring forward suggestions for the countywide plan during a public listening session on October 25th at 6PM in the Camden County Boathouse7050 N. Park Drive, Pennsauken, NJ. If you plan to attend please RSVP to Jane Meconi - Bring your ideas on how to make Camden County a more bicycle-friendly community.

The plan is being developed in four Phases. Phases I and II have been completed; work on Phases III and IV of this project is being done concurrently. When entirely completed, all four parts will be combined into a county-wide plan sometime next year. Before presenting the finished document to the Camden County Board of Freeholders for potential adoption, citizens will have an opportunity to comment on the plan in its entirety via an online mapping application.

To get a general idea of the work that has already been done on the plan, take a look at the Phase II draft.
