During Fiscal Year 2022/23, Public Works Staff and Civiltech Engineering worked to create the Village's first Bicycle Plan. The Bicycle Plan was completed to provide a framework for the Village to prioritize bicycle-related capital improvements and recommendations on the location and various types of bicycle facilities throughout the Village for a safe and accessible bicycle system for all ages and abilities to amenities with the Village.
The Bicycle Plan is available here!
