Greenville County Pedestrian and Bicycle Network Improvement Plan
From our launch in February, Bike Walk Greenville has worked to make Greenville County more bike and pedestrian friendly. A key achievement is our partnership with the Greenville County Planning Department to develop the first Greenville County Pedestrian and Bicycle Network Improvement Plan.
The plan goal is to define the County’s long-term vision for an improved pedestrian and bicycle network and to identify cost-effective strategies for implementing that vision. The plan will emphasize the areas around schools and other key corridors that connect parks, employment centers, and other commercial areas.
A critical component of the plan will be input from the citizens who live, work, and attend school in Greenville County. Add your voice to the plan development process by using our popular mapping tool and attending the public workshops. For details read the press release. Contact Frank Mansbach if you have any questions.
