Public invited to help with Nevada County bicycle master plan

Bicyclists or bicycle-friendly residents who want to help prioritize projects in the newest Nevada County Bicycle Master Plan are invited to a meeting Friday.

The gathering, hosted on behalf of the Mobility Action Partners Accessible Transportation Coalition, will be from 1 to 3 p.m. at the county’s Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City, Providence Meeting Room B.

“We want to get it down to the top five projects in each jurisdiction in western Nevada County,” said Mike Woodman, a member of the Mobility Action Partners Accessible Transportation Coalition and a staff member for the Nevada County Transportation Commission. “Those jurisdictions have limited resources, and this will help them focus on the projects that folks want, and that will bring the most benefit to the community.”



The current bicycle master plan was most recently updated in 2013 after significant outreach with local jurisdictions, regional agencies, stakeholders and the general public. Attendees at Friday’s meeting will review the existing plan and develop a consensus on the top five priority projects for Nevada County, Grass Valley, and Nevada City, Woodman said.

The Coalition and Nevada County Transportation Commission will then prepare letters to each jurisdiction outlining recommended priority projects for each agency’s consideration.
