Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester government council holds public walk-bike meetings

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) is hosting four public meetings to gather input for Walk + Bike BCD, the regional pedestrian and bicycle master plan.

According to a press release, the meetings will be in open house format, allowing interested citizens to drop-in at any time between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.

All residents of the tri-county are invited to learn about proposed roadway and trail improvements and recommended new programs and policies for active transportation.

Walk Bike BCD is a plan focusing on safety improvements and access for people traveling by foot, bike or bus. Organizers say public participation is critical to developing the Walk Bike BCD plan.

Proposed improvements are based on data-driven analysis, as well as input received through a series of public outreach strategies including
a stakeholder committee, multiple “pop-up” meetings at community events throughout the region, a citizen survey, and an online interactive mapping tool.

Following the input received through the upcoming public meetings, the project team will incorporate citizen feedback and establish criteria for prioritizing projects across the region in a way that will guide future investments in active transportation.

For those unable to attend, information about the plan’s progress and an online comment form are provided at www.walkbikeBCD.com.
