There will be no formal presentations during the drop-in style sessions, which will provide an overview on the county’s bicycle transportation and pedestrian walkways needs assessment.

Displays will be set up and visitors can talk with consultant representatives and county staff.

John Cunard, the county’s director of engineering, said in a statement that there is a “great deal of interest among our citizens about the future plans for alternative means of transportation like biking and walking.”

“We welcome and encourage all interested residents to attend these meetings and offer their input,” he said.

The existing plan was adopted in 2002 and last updated in 2008.

According to a county news release the goal is to foster the development of an interconnected network of bicycle and pedestrian facilities that meets the county’s future transportation mobility and recreation needs. It also promotes alternative means of transportation, and enhances the county’s overall quality of life.
