Connecting Columbia Consultants to Share Preliminary Recommendations

Public meeting will be held May 23 at The Other Barn

On Wednesday, May 23, the Toole Design Group, consultants for Connecting Columbia, the Columbia Association’s (CA) active transportation project, will present preliminary recommendations to improve connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists in Columbia. Community members are encouraged to attend, and to learn about and discuss the recommendations.

This is the third and final public meeting for the Connecting Columbia project. At the first two meetings in January, more than 130 people participated and contributed ideas to improve the pathway system and overall connectivity of Columbia for pedestrians and cyclists. Since then, CA staff has been working with Toole Design Group, a nationally recognized planning and engineering firm specializing in bicycle and pedestrian planning and design, and a 16-member citizens’ task force. For more information on this project, please visit ColumbiaAssociation.org/ConnectingColumbia.

The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Other Barn, located at 5851 Robert Oliver Place in Columbia. Registration for the meeting is appreciated, but not required. Register online at connecting-columbia-preliminary-recommendations.eventbrite.com/. For questions about the meeting, please contact Scott Templin at 410-715-3166 or Scott.Templin@ColumbiaAssociation.org.
