Deadline for submitting online campus bicycle, pedestrian infrastructure feedback and upcoming meeting

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A steering committee of Purdue University faculty, staff and students, along with the consulting team of Rundell Ernstberger Associates, LLC, and Toole Design Group, are collaborating to develop a strategy for the future of pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure on the West Lafayette campus.

As communicated at the first round of public meetings in February, there are three ways that students, faculty, staff, visitors and community members can provide online feedback to the consulting team. These feedback mechanisms are available on the Purdue Bikes website and include the following:

* An online survey

* A Wikimap, which allows users to mark routes regularly traveled, routes that should exist, barriers to bicycling and bicycle parking needs

* A general bicycle feedback/suggestion form

The online survey and Wikimap will close this Friday (April 11), so interested stakeholders should complete them before the end of this week. The general bicycle feedback/suggestion form will remain available as the project progresses. The Purdue Bikes website also includes a number of useful features such as campus travel guidelines, safety tips, a map of bicycle routes, and a list of applicable regulations and ordinances.

Watch for information on the next round of public meetings being held later in April at the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center.
