Bike Input Workshops Rescheduled Dates

The weather caused a cancelation last week with one of the MPO Bicycle Input workshops.  These updated times and locations are available to attend and give input on local bicycling opportunities and challenges: 
  • Tuesday, February 12, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the Coralville Public Library (1401 5th Street, Coralville)

  • Residents of Coralville, North Liberty, Tiffin, and University Heights as well those interested in general bicycling conditions in Johnson County are welcome to attend either event. Public input gathered through these events will help set a foundation for the plan in terms of future facilities, road and trail improvements, and policies and programs that make bicycling safer and easier. The initial public workshops will include a brief overview of the planning process and existing conditions. Attendees will provide input on existing barriers identified through a recent online survey as well as opportunities for better connectivity between metro communities and to the county trail system. While the plan does not cover Iowa City, it will consider connections to planned facilities identified in the Iowa City Bicycle Master Plan, adopted in 2017.
