Let us know what you think! Washington County has drafted a preliminary county-wide Bike and Pedestrian network in an effort to increase opportunities for non-motorized vehicle transportation.
The recommended network strives to connect Washington County communities, employment centers, points of interest and major recreational areas. In addition, the draft network seeks to connect Washington County with communities and existing trails in neighboring counties such as the Bugline Trail in Waukesha County and the Interurban Trail in Ozaukee County.
As part of an ongoing effort to gain public input, Washington County will hold different “Meetings in a Box” sessions at various events and locations throughout the month of November. The goal of each “Meeting in a Box” is to solicit feedback on the recommended bicycle and pedestrian network and the project prioritization.
The input of the public, stakeholder groups, and municipalities in Washington County is critical to the success of this project.
Please join us at one of the following “Meetings in a Box” events:
– YMCA West Washington Branch
– Saturday, Nov. 17, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the West Washington Branch
– West Bend. The “Meeting in a Box” table will be located in the front lobby.
– Santa Ramp Up – Sunday, Nov. 25, from 10 to 11 a.m. at West Bend Tap and Tavern.
The “Meeting in a Box” table will be located at West Bend Tap and Tavern. In addition to the “Meetings in a Box” events, Washington County will soon release an interactive webbased map to solicit feedback on project prioritization. Please check the County website for more details. More information on the “Meetings in a Box” or the Bike and Pedestrian Plan can be found on the county’s website a t www.co.washington.wi.u s/Bike or contact Deb Sielski at 262-335-4772.
