KCK has created the first draft of a new master plan for sidewalks and trails based on public comments received in March 2012. This week is your opportunity to see the draft and provide more feedback to planners and engineers.
The City of Overland park is considering a Complete Streets policy to better include walking and bicycling in future street projects, and it gets its first hearing the evening of Wednesday, January 25th.
Update 12/14/2011 5:00 p.m. - The amendment passed unanimously. We owe a big thanks to everyone who contacted Senators Blunt and McCaskill!
Today Missouri Senators Clairie McCaskill and Roy Blunt will be voting in committee on a Complete Streets amendment that would require all road users to be fairly considered in projects that receive federal funding. Since most transportation projects in the Kansas City area recevie federal funds, this would be a huge boost to making our region better for walking and bicycling.
