Pittsfield Seeks Input For Bicycle Facilities Master Plan
The City of Pittsfield is requesting public input for its draft Bicycle Facilities Master Plan, which aims to establish a safe, comfortable and connected bicycle network throughout the city that is accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
Here's the Press Release From the City of Pittsfield and the Mayor's Office:
A link to the Bicycle Facilities Master Plan, as well as an interactive map and public input survey, which is open through Oct. 30, is available on the homepage of the city’s website, under “Hot Topics.” A public meeting will be held via Zoom at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21; a link will be posted on this page during the week of Oct. 12.
“With this project, the City of Pittsfield is taking a significant step in its steadfast commitment to plan and implement a safe and accessible city-wide network for people who bike for various reasons to a range of destinations throughout Pittsfield,” said City Planner CJ Hoss. “The development of this master plan will be a collaborative process, and we are seeking to hear from the community.”
The Bicycle Facilities Master Plan will allow the city to develop a long-term citywide vision for a bicycle network and grow beyond a ‘one-street-at-a-time’ planning approach, Hoss said. The city has retained Kittleson and Associations, Inc., a nationally renowned transportation focused consulting firm, to lead this project.
