Regional Bicycle Outreach and Priority Setting
Posted by on July 04, 2011
Bicycle Issues Defined in Greater Philadelphia
Planners and bicycling advocates have a much clearer idea of the region’s bicycling needs, thanks to a new study by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC). Titled Shifting Gears: Regional Bicycle Outreach and Priority Setting, the study defines regional bicycling issues, which will help better match agency resources to the bicycling needs across the region.
As a first step, DVRPC took an inventory of regionally relevant bicycle, trail, and open space plans, as well as other regionally or locally significant information. In addition, meetings were held with regional stakeholders, and an online public survey provided input on specific locations that should be considered for bicycle enhancements.
As a result of this outreach, the Commission determined top priority bicycle locations for each of the nine counties in the Delaware Valley region. Locations were also prioritized based on volume of bicycle-related crashes, proximity to local attractors, and location relative to other bicycle facilities.
