The City of Erie is seeking feedback on a community-wide Active Transportation Plan called “Active Erie”. When complete, the plan will include recommendations on how to make the city accessible to people who walk, bike, ride a bus, or use other non-motorized means of getting to and from important destinations. The plan is guided by a mission to have a network of streets that are beautiful, comfortable, and safe community spaces where people want to be.
“Transportation plays a critical role in every community,” said City Planner Kathy Wyrosdick. “It connects people to places they need to go and people they need to see. Everyone has a right to get to their destination safely, whether traveling by foot, bicycle, bus, or car. Active forms of transportation like walking and biking provide a convenient, healthy, and affordable way to get around Erie.”
The Active Erie plan will include projects and policies to improve conditions for people walking and bicycling in the City. Visit the Active Erie website at www.activeerie.com to take the survey and learn more about the plan.
Those who take the survey will be entered for a chance to win one of five gift cards from an Erie business, including: Competitive Gear, Whole Foods Co-op, Country Fair, the Erie Downtown Partnership, and Urbaniak’s Quality Meats. The survey closes July 17.
