City to hire bicycle consultant
At the CABA sponsored public forum on June 8 City of Charlotte Project Manager Jim Keenan announced that a consultant is expected to be hired later this year to work with the bicycle community on ways to integrate a bikeway route parallel to the corridor from Uptown to UNC Charlotte. This is major news for bicycling in Charlotte !
Much thanks also to Andy Mock (CATS), Kathy Cornett (City Planning staff station coordinator) and Ken Tippette (CDOT bicycle program manager) for helping an enthusiastic audience sort through the status and complexities of this long-term project.
