Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning Host Final Public Meeting on Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update

Publish Date: 05/31/2013

Annapolis, Maryland (May 31, 2013) – The Anne Arundel County Office of Planning and Zoning’s Transportation Division will hold a final public meeting to discuss updates to the County’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Broadneck Senior High School, 1265 Green Holly Drive, Annapolis.

Over the past several months consultants have been working to identify ways to facilitate and foster pedestrian and bicycle utilitarian trips, such as to work, school or shopping.  One major objective of the study is to identify and assess deficiencies and continuity gaps that exist in the network of pedestrian and bicycle facilities within the County’s urbanized area.  The urbanized area is defined by the area located within the boundaries of planned utility service (water and sewer district).

The Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan is a component of a larger ongoing project to prepare the County’s Transportation Functional Master Plan as recommended in the adopted General Development Plan. In addition to enhanced pedestrian and bicycle travel, the broader planning initiative will incorporate analysis of opportunities to improve travel in the County’s major highway corridors (e.g. through transit, managed lanes, etc.); identify potential regulatory changes that may facilitate efficient use of rights of way for all travel modes; and evaluate strategies to relieve congestion at existing traffic bottlenecks.

 

The Transportation Functional Master Plan study is anticipated to be completed within the next 18 months.  The Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan will be an element or chapter of that Plan, so there will be several more opportunities to receive public comments all of the components of the plan, including the Pedestrian and Bicycle recommendations during that next 18 month period.  Please watch the Planning & Zoning Home Page as those opportunities will be announced.  Thank you for your participation.
