CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN PLANNING AND DESIGNING BIKEWAYS

The United States has recently experienced a sharp resurgence in bicycling activities. Public agencies are actively planning and constructing bicycle facilities. However, these facilities may have some adverse as well as beneficial community impacts. More citizen pariticpation in the planning of bikeways can help provide better facilities. Several citizen participation techniques are discussed, and an example of a bikeway planning program that incorporates citizen participation is also presented. The use of these techniques can help provide safer, more efficient, effective, and compatible bikeway systems. /Author/
