A bicycle network is beginning to emerge from your input over the past months and through study of Vermillion’s physical environment. On March 22nd, the Study Advisory Committee reviewed a draft network and contributed their ideas and revisions. The next step is to refine the network and to identify the appropriate type of facilities for each segment of the network (i.e.: signage, bike lanes, multi-use paths). The draft bicycle network will be posted to the website once the recommendations of the Study Advisory Team have been incorporated.
Thanks to everyone who attended the four neighborhood workshops!
Participants learned about the planning process and shared their insight and ideas for how we can make it easier to ride a bike in Vermillion. Next we use all of the community input to create a bicycle network that brings together a system of multi-use paths and on-street facilities (download the below presentation boards for facility examples) to allow a bicyclist to comfortably ride a bike from place to place throughout town!

The Bicycle Study Advisory Team met on January 4th, 2018 to review the plan progress and survey results. The team received insights on the characteristic of people who bike in the community, their priorities, and the type of streets and bicycle facilities people feel most or least comfortable using. The team also reviewed existing road condition and result of the interactive map. After a fruitful conversation about the survey and knowledge sharing, the meeting concluded with a discussion about series of upcoming meetings throughout the city.
Thank you to the attendees and stay tuned for an update on upcoming meetings!
