The City of Lowell’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Steering Committee had their first meeting on Thursday, February 21 and it went well! Over the next several months the city, assisted by this group, will develop a forward-looking plan for sidewalks, bike lanes, trails, and all forms of active transportation.
Please join us on Thursday, March 28, from 6:00pm-8:00pm at City Hall for a public input meeting on the City's Pedestrian Plan. The Plan will address citywide pedestrian needs like gaps in the sidewalk, safer ways to cross the street, and better ramps at street corners. The Pedestrian Plan outlines issues and proposes solutions to problems for pedestrians with the ultimate goal being safe, easy, and convenient pedestrian travel. In addition, the Plan will promote a pedestrian friendly environment where public spaces, including streets and off-street paths, offer a high level of comfort, convenience, efficiency, and safety within the city.
