“Public Meeting – Tuesday, October 24th from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. to Obtain Input for the Update to the West Piedmont Regional Bicycle Plan”

          The West Piedmont Planning District Commission (WPPDC) is in the process of updating the West Piedmont Regional Bicycle Plan, originally adopted in May 2005.  Since the time of this plan’s adoption, some of its recommendations have been achieved, and some bicyclists’ riding preferences have changed. 

          This regional bicycle plan update renews many of the original plan’s route recommendations, but now adds priority routes along major transportation corridors, proposes greater connectivity between existing routes, and displays popular destinations for local resident bicyclists and visiting recreational riders.

          WPPDC staff want YOUR input for this updated bicycle plan.  We will hold a public input meeting for the City of Martinsville and Henry County at the office of the West Piedmont Planning District Commission, 1100 Madison Street, Martinsville, VA  24112 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24th.  If you cannot attend and you would like to provide your input, please visit (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BYRN9F5) to take a brief survey.  More information on the bike plan is available by visiting www.wppdc.org.
