Baltimore County officials are seeking public input for a plan to improve bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
County officials are asking for the public’s help to identify policy and physical barriers to complete streets, meaning streets that are accessible to all types of users; experiences using public transportation; and other areas for improvement.
County officials will collect residents’ ideas and use them to develop recommendations for Baltimore County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. A draft report will be released in early 2022.
“Enhancing bicycling and walking in the region will contribute to the local economy, promote active lifestyles, and grow regional tourism,” Acting Director of Public Works and Transportation D’Andrea Walker said in a statement. “We look forward to partnership for community members so we can continue our efforts to plan for the future of our County’s transportation infrastructure.”
The new master plan will be a long-awaited update Baltimore County’s current Eastern and Western Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plans, which the Baltimore County Council adopted in 2006 and 2012, respectively.
