AGENDA 21 ALERT: REGIONAL BIKE PLAN MEETING TONIGHT IN JP

ALERT:  REGIONAL SMART GROWTH BIKE PATH PLAN MEETING TONIGHT...... PLEASE READ THIS BACKGROUND INFO : http://www.meetup.com/The-Greater-New-Orleans-Tea-Party/messages/boards/thread/30886392/0/#[masked]

 

 

The Regional Planning Commission and Jefferson Parish wants residents input in formulating a bicycle master plan. The first public meeting on the issue is Monday night at 6:30 at the East Bank Regional Library, 4747 West Napoleon Ave., Metairie.

A second meeting will be Wednesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the West Bank Regional Library, 2751 Manhattan Blvd., Harvey.

Planners involved in the process want residents to bring their ideas for where they would like to see bike paths and lanes. Planners also want to get an idea as to where cyclists currently ride.

The goal is to make biking accessible for residents for recreation as well as an alternate form of transportation, officials said.

    Jefferson Parish already has a wonderful bike path along the Lake Ponchitrain shore. This was once the old Hammond Highway. It has been used for biking, jogging and walking for decades. Most that use this trail, as the MRT on the Mississippi River Levee, use it as a recreational path not an alternitive to means of Transportation. No one is going to give up their Cars as a means to get to work, etc. A bike path of the sort would be ill used and a waste of Tax payer's dollars.
