The city of Newport Beach is hosting an informational event tomorrow at the Newport Pier plaza to help get community input about the development of the city's Bicycle Master Plan.
The creation of the Bicycle Master Plan is being guided by members of the Bicycle Master Plan Oversight Committee, which was approved by the City Council in March. Brad Sommers, the city's senior civil engineer, said the plan will be used to help make bicycle rides better in Newport Beach, and
encourage more people to enjoy biking for leisure, exercise or transportation. Sommers said community input is essential.
information from a wide variety of users, including all forms of
cyclists, pedestrians, and
motorists, ensures the Bicycle Master Plan addresses the needs of the
cycling community without adversely affecting other users," Sommers said.
Anyone who cannot attend Saturday's community event can take part in an online community survey. More information about the Bicycle Master Plan can be found at newportbeachca.gov/index.aspx?page=2297.
