Public Involvement Opportunities

Update...

Council will have a first and second reading of the Bicycle Master Plan on September 26th and October 10th.    Adoption of the Plan constitutes an amendment to City ordinance so a Council vote is required at each reading.  The meetings will be held in Council Chambers on the 10th floor of 206 S. Main Street at 5:30pm.  The public is invited to speak at the Council meetings, but should notify the City Clerk of their intent to speak at least one day prior to the meeting.

A draft of the Bicycle Master Plan was presented to Greenville City Council on June 13th, 2011.  A PDF version of the presentation can be downloaded here: Greenville BMP Presentation 6/13/11

More information:

The City is seeking to gain input and ideas about bicycling from the entire community - whether the person is a cycling enthusiast, a recreational rider or a concerned motorist.  All community members are invited and encouraged to attend the workshops.  The first community workshop was designed to introduce the project and give attendees an opportunity to provide input on bike facilities, bike routes, problem areas and popular destinations. Photos from that event are provided below.
