Bicycle and pedestrian master plan community survey is now open
Everyone invited to complete the community survey

   GRAND ISLAND, Neb.— The Grand Island Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (GIAMPO), in coordination with the City of Grand Island, will be holding a community survey as part of the bicycle and pedestrian master plan. A key task of the project includes community input to define the preferences and opinions of current and prospective cyclists and pedestrians, which will be important guidance for designing a bicycle and pedestrian network for the Grand Island region.  

   The community survey will be available online through Friday, Sept. 29. Resident feedback is highly valued. Links to an English and Spanish version of the online survey can be found at www.walkbikegi.com. Paper copies of the survey will also be available in the Public Works suite at Grand Island City Hall, 100 E. First St.

   The survey responses will be analyzed and included as part of the GIAMPO bicycle and pedestrian master plan final report which will later be released to the community.

   RDG Planning & Design has been hired as the lead consultant for the GIAMPO bicycle and pedestrian master plan which has a seven-month schedule, concluding in February 2018. 

   The purpose of the bicycle and pedestrian master plan is to:

          -assess the existing conditions and opportunities for pedestrian and bicycle transportation in the Grand Island region;
          -develop a system and program that expands routine bike and pedestrian   transportation/recreation use;
          -and recommend a sequence of future bicycle, pedestrian, and trail projects.

   Visit the www.walkbikegi.com to learn more about the project. Information and a link to the survey can also be found on the city of Grand Island website at www.grand-island.com/GIAMPO. Residents may also contact Allan Zafft, MPO program manager, at 308-389-0273 or allanz@grand-island.com.
