City of Wichita - Bicycle Master Plan

The city of Wichita is launching a new advisory volunteer board for issues related to bicycling and walking.

The board will provide recommendations to the City Council, participate in planning and project development, evaluate policies; and make recommendations to City departments.

It will also play an influential role in implementing Wichita’s Bicycle Master Plan.

The Wichita City Council Tuesday approved the Bicycle Master Plan. It recommends ways to make bicycling easier, safer and more convenient in Wichita.

A 19-member steering committee worked on the plan for two years. More than 4,000 people participated in the planning process at various meetings and events.

At the council meeting, Scott Wadle of the city's planning department outlined some of the recommendations:

Mark McCormick returns to KAAM; Reno County Residents Consider Jail Renovation Tax; Wichita City Council approves bike plan; Kansas Senate Committee has to delay work on tax plan because of a printing problem; Sen. Michael O'Donnell introduces legislation to have Kansas college basketball teams play.
