Help Austin get around better
Tuesday, July 20, 2021 by Tai Moses
Community members are invited to attend the first virtual public meeting for ATX Walk Bike Roll, which the city describes as “a project to update three existing plans that guide sidewalk, urban trail and bikeway projects in the city.” The effort, a partnership between Public Works and the Transportation Department, is aimed at creating “more accessible and interconnected ways for people to travel,” which basically means it will give more people more choices in how they get from place to place. As the city’s announcement explains, “Austin has grown since the sidewalk, urban trails and bikeway plans were published over five years ago. The plans were created prior to the voter-approved 2016, 2018, and 2020 bonds, which allocated a combined $306.5 million to the Urban Trails, Sidewalk and Bikeway programs. Public input is needed to help the city determine when and where to build these transportation networks.” Sign up here to attend the virtual meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 11, from 7-8 p.m.
