Bicyclists, along with walkers and residents who use public transit have an opportunity to share their thoughts on a new plan for mobility improvements.

Do you walk or ride your bike in Fort Worth? Do you use public transportation? If you answered yes to one of these questions, mark your calendar and make plans to attend a public meeting to give input on how the city can make mobility improvements.

The City of Fort Worth has partnered with the North Central Texas Council of Governments with support through the Blue Zones Project to create an Active Transportation Plan. Active transportation is transportation powered by human energy, and the active transportation network is the bicycle and pedestrian facilities, as well as connections to the public transportation system, that allows people to get around the city without a car.

Public transportation is active travel because it often starts or ends with a walking trip and it provides an essential connection for people who walk (including people who use mobility devices).

This plan will integrate and update previous planning efforts such as the Walk Fort Worth and Bike Fort Worth plans, develop a new Trails Master Plan and provide coordination with the regional Transit Master Plan. The result will be a unified, citywide transportation network for people who walk and bike, with a coordinated implementation strategy for planning, prioritizing and building improvements.

Meetings are scheduled for 6-7 p.m. at these locations:
Sept. 25, Fort Worth Central Library, 500 W. Third St.
Sept. 27, Southwest Regional Library, 4001 Library Lane
Oct. 2, Northside Senior Center, 1100 N.W. 18th St.
Oct. 3, Sycamore Community Center (Computer Lab), 2525 E. Rosedale St.
Oct. 8, Heritage Church of Christ, 4201 Heritage Trace Parkway.
Oct. 9, Greenbriar community Center (Computer Lab), 5200 Hemphill St.
Oct. 10, Chisholm Trail Community Center (Computer Lab), 4936 McPherson Blvd.

The Sept. 25 meeting will have a presentation at 6 p.m. followed by audience comments and questions. The other meetings will be an open house format so the public may come and go at their convenience, and staff will be available to answer questions.

For those who are unable to attend, an online presentation from the Sept. 25 public meeting and online survey will be available through Nov. 2.
