Open Houses to be Held for the Large-scale Regional Bicycle Plan

Great Rivers Greenway is providing area residents with one last chance to weigh in on the large-scale
regional bicycle plan that is being developed to enhance on-road connectivity throughout the St. Louis
region. During the month of May, Great Rivers Greenway will hold four public open house events so that
residents can learn more about existing routes in their communities, view maps, comment on the
proposed network of regional on-road routes, review what it will take to implement the system and learn
about the performance measures needed to ensure successful expansion of an interconnected on-road
system of bicycle routes in the region. The plan will encompass St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St.
Charles County with over 100 municipalities involved in the planning effort. The open houses will take
place from 4:30 - 7 PM on May 10 at the Webster Groves Recreation Center, May 11 at the Forest Park
Visitor's Center, May 17 at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and on May 19 at St. Peters City Hall.
Attendees can choose to come to any of the four open houses, as they will be identical, and arrive anytime
during the designated 4:30 - 7 PM timeframe. Individuals unable to attend any of the remaining open
houses can still provide input through the project's website, Visitors will be able to
view information from the open houses and participate in an online survey through Friday, June 3. For
more information about the regional bicycle plan, the specific locations of the open houses, or the online
opportunity to participate, visit
