MPO Bike Subcommittee Meeting, October 10, 2012

The Lafayette Metropolitan Planning Organization's Bicycle Subcommittee meets again this Wednesday, October 10, 2012, from Noon  to 1 p.m. at the Rosa Parks Transportation Center in downtown Lafayette. 

This week's agenda items include updates to the MPO's 2035 Bikeway Plan and a resolution to allow for dedication of 10% of Annual Urban Systems Funding for Bike/Ped improvements in the Lafayette Metropolitan Study Area. For the full agenda  click here

Bicycle Subcommittee meetings are open to the public. Meetings are intentionally scheduled alternately over lunch or on a week day evening to facilitate participation.  Bike Lafayette has one representative on the committee, and Bike Lafayette members also attend as members of the public. Committee members and MPO staff who facilitate the committee's work have been very open to Bike Lafayette members' presence, questions and input.

Our attendance has been really instructive for understanding the role of the MPO and how we as bicycle advocates can become engaged. If you want to contribute to public efforts to area improvements in bicycling conditions, this is a great place to plug in.
