June 20 Bike Montco Event – Be One of the First to View the New Bike Montco Plan!


Bike Montco — Building a Bike-Friendly Montgomery County


Be one of the first to view the draft Bike Montco plan, Montgomery County’s new bicycle mobility plan! This plan represents a new approach to bicycle planning in the Philadelphia region. It can be used as a tool to make your community safer and more attractive to bicyclists. During this free seminar, several speakers will share the content of the plan and topics including building safer on-road bicycle infrastructure, linking to the county’s trail network, and the role the county can play in providing bicyclist safety education and encouragement strategies for new riders. Attendees also will have an opportunity to take a brief tour of Morris Road, one of the study areas in the plan, and to hear about the plan’s recommendations to improve bicycle safety at the community college. This seminar is intended for municipal staff, transportation professionals, planners, and school districts, but everyone is welcome! AICP credits – CM | 1.75. Click here to register.

This event is being provided as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2018, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach, and corresponds to the Connected Communities theme contained in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision,Montgomery County’s nationally awarded comprehensive plan.
