Harford County to Develop Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

(Bel Air, MD) – – Harford County Executive David R. Craig and the Department of Planning & Zoning have announced that the County will be undertaking the development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is an important part of helping to make Harford County a truly multimodal community; one that promotes and supports increased bicycle and pedestrian activity. It is also an important step in helping Harford County become a healthier community.

The development of the plan is anticipated to take about a year, and to help the department with this effort the County Executive has appointed a Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Group. The group consists of representatives from various government agencies and departments as well as bicycle and pedestrian advocates.

The advisory group will meet periodically throughout 2012, and the public will be able to follow the process and the work of the advisory group on the department’s webpage at www.harfordcountymd.gov/planningzoning. This website will also provide a direct link to the department’s online networking site where citizens will be able to provide their input. Public workshops will be conducted as part of the planning process.
