BELLINGHAM - With the aim of making bicycle transportation a viable option for more residents, the city is holding an open house Tuesday, April 23, to gather input for a bicycle master plan.
The meeting will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Whatcom Middle School auditorium, 810 Halleck St. City staff will give a presentation at 6:30 p.m.
Meeting participants will discuss existing and future bicycle routes, and important destinations for bicyclists.
The bicycle master plan will take a year to complete and is part of a broader long-term plan to reduce motor-vehicle use to 75 percent of all trips in the city by 2022. Money for projects included in the plan will come from a sales tax city voters approved in 2010 for more bicycling, walking and transit options in Bellingham.
