Baltimore County’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC) is seeking community input to help identify the next round of pedestrian and bicycle projects. Members of the public are invited to voice their preferences at a community input meeting to be held Tuesday, March 13, 5:00 p.m. in the Jefferson Building Hearing Room, Room 104, 105 West Chesapeake Avenue, Towson, MD 21204.

The Committee is looking for projects that will provide County residents with the greatest benefit at the lowest cost. Projects should be ones that have been recommended by Baltimore County’s Eastern and Western Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Plans and have the following characteristics:

Relatively low in cost Due to the County’s many capital needs, the availability of County funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects is limited. State, federal and private grant funding can be sought to pay for projects such as bike route signage, bike lane striping, and feasibility studies for shared use paths, as well as sidewalks and other pedestrian improvements.

Link to significant destinations  Improvements that provide many residents with safer pedestrian or bicycle access to schools, libraries, parks, shopping centers, employment areas or transit stations are especially desirable.

Community support  Not all communities are ready to become walkable and bike-friendly. The PBAC wants to target projects in neighborhoods that really want them and will use them.
