Seeking Public Input April 11: Walk, Bike, Hike Study

Posted on April 1, 2019

Keeping Vibrant Communities Connected and Informed

There will be a second public meeting to discuss the county’s Walk, Bike, Hike Study’s draft recommendations on Thursday, April 11, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The meeting will be held in the third-floor freeholders’ meeting room at the county administration building, located at 20 Grove St., Somerville. Free parking is available in the adjacent Bernie Field Parking Deck; the entrance is off East High Street.

The draft Walk, Bike, Hike network outlines the first stage of upgrades and redesigns for the county’s trails and bike systems. Devised by the county’s planning experts and consultants, the draft plan was created using public feedback and other data and will be the basis for improving interconnectedness among trail systems, bike lanes, bike facilities and pedestrian paths and crossings.

“The public will have the chance to find out what enhancements others have suggested for Somerset County’s trails and bike systems,” said Freeholder Director Levine. “This is a great opportunity for residents to provide their opinion about the proposed improvements.”  Attendees are encouraged to provide feedback and have face-to-face conversations with the county’s planning experts and consultants before and after the presentation.
