Want a Say in the New Dallas Bike Plan? Then Ride on Over to City Hall on May 27.
Two months ago we directed your attention to the fact that the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the city of Dallas had hired, at the cost of $375,000, Baltimore-based Toole Design Group to revamp the antiquated Dallas Bike Plan. Toole has developed bicycle master plans for 16 cities, including Philadelphia, the District of Columbia, Baltimore (but of course) and Seattle, where Toole also has offices.
Today we get word, from the Congress for the New Urbanism, of a "2011 Dallas Bike Plan Open House" at Dallas City Hall ("in coordination with the City of Dallas 'Complete Streets' Initiative) set for May 27 from 5 to 8 p.m., so mark your calendars accordingly. Right now, there's precious little info on the new Dallas Bike Plan homepage, which promises "a full website, a survey and an interactive map coming soon!" Till then, there's just the invite. And you can register to get more info as it's made available, which is what Unfair Park's for.
