Town of Bloomsburg Creating a Connectivity Master Plan, Invites Public Input

From Town of Bloomsburg

The Town of Bloomsburg is creating a Walk, Bike, Connectivity Master Plan and invites the community to participate in the planning process. The public is encouraged to attend public meetings, take the online public opinion survey, and give virtual feedback via WikiMapping.

The Connectivity Master Plan will analyze existing pedestrian & bicycle infrastructure, and propose improvements to increase overall safety & connectivity in Bloomsburg.

Public meetings to discuss the Walk, Bike, Connectivity Master Plan will take place at the Bloomsburg Fire Hall: 911 Market St, Bloomsburg.

• Public Meeting #1 will take place Tuesday Sept. 17, 2019 at 7 p.m.
• Public Meeting #2 will take place Wednesday Oct. 30, 2019 at 7 p.m.
• Public Meeting #3 will take place Tuesday Jan. 21, 2020 at 7 p.m.
• Public Meeting #4 will take place Wednesday April 29, 2020 at 7 p.m.

Through the public opinion survey residents may comment on current pedestrian/bicycle infrastructure, safety concerns, as well as desired connectivity improvements.

Through the online WikiMapping platform, responders can pin comments directly to a map of Bloomsburg. Responders can mark important destinations, sidewalk gaps, desired locations for new sidewalks, desired locations for new trails, and any other information relevant to the project.

The public survey and WikiMapping can be accessed online

Hard copies of the survey may be picked up and returned completed to the Bloomsburg Town Hall (301 E. 2nd Street, Bloomsburg, PA 17815). The survey will be active until Jan. 20, 2020.
