The Prairie Village City Council, through a Mid-America Regional Council funding program, has hired TranSystems to develop a comprehensive bike and pedestrian plan for the city. This meeting will focus on hearing from Prairie Village residents about opportunities, concerns or experiences in their neighborhood to improve safety and use of active modes of transportation. The meeting will also include educational information about the types of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations that will be considered in the study. The study is expected to be completed in September of this year.
UPDATE: An open house/public meeting was held on Thursday, June 15, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Community Center by City Hall. The topic was city-wide bicycle and pedestrian accommodations in Prairie Village.
Information from the public meeting on June 15th can be found below. As well as a comment form to submit your comments concerning the plan.
The City is also providing a “Meeting in a Box” for groups to get their membership involved. From June 16 to July 14 the City will have self-contained and self-guided meeting packages for civic groups to go through with their members. If your church group, school PTA, homeowners association, or other civic minded group in Prairie Village would like to participate, please go the front desk at City Hall and request your free “Meeting in a Box.” Each box contains the same materials from the open house meeting and will typically take less than a half hour to review and make comments.
