Sidewalk Master Plan update informational meetings to be held this month

Monday, September 10, 2012 | 2:18 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Residents can provide input on the city's Sidewalk Master Plan update at information meetings this month held by the Community Development Department.

The meetings will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on: 

  • Monday at The ARC, 1701 W. Ash St. 
  • Wednesday at City Hall, Room 1B, 701 E. Broadway

The Sidewalk Master Plan uses public input to prioritize new projects where sidewalks do not currently exist and to identify projects to apply for funding. 

Of the 48 projects listed on the plan, nine are either under way or complete. Most projects are funded through GetAbout Columbia — a non-motorized pilot program funded by the Federal Highway Administration. There are currently 39 projects proposed for the 2012 plan update. 

Pubic input on projects is also possible through an online survey that will be available until Friday at 5 p.m. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission will review all public input at its Sept. 19 meeting and is expected to forward an updated plan and recommended project list to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council for additional public input in late 2012.

The public can currently review and comment on the potential project list for the 2012 Sidewalk Master Plan Update through the proposed project list and maps.

Anyone with questions can call 874-7239.

Supervising editor is Jacob Kirn.
