Somerville Bicycle Network Planning Meeting, December 15

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and the City of Somerville Mobility Division invite you to a virtual community meeting to discuss Somerville’s first citywide bicycle network plan.

The City’s goal is to create a comprehensive network of streets where people of all abilities will feel comfortable and safe riding their bikes through Somerville. To achieve that vision, the City is collaborating with Street Plans, an urban planning, design, research-advocacy firm, to develop a citywide bicycle network plan. The plan will designate corridors for various bikeway facilities, connect gaps in the current network, and guide future improvements. It will also include actionable policy, project, and program recommendations to guide the implementation of an inclusive bicycle environment for all Somerville residents.

Join us for the first community meeting to learn about existing conditions, recent survey data, and how you can participate in plan development. Public engagement will continue through the spring, and a draft plan is expected to be completed in the fall.

The meeting will take place virtually on Wednesday, December 15, at 6 p.m. To learn more and register to attend, visit somervillema.gov/bikenetwork.
