Next week the KCMO City Council's Transportation and Infrastructure
Committee will have three open houses around the city to get citizen
input on the committee's work. This committee deals with things like
roads, bridges, trails, bike routes, sidewalks, transit, etc. It is
chaired by Councilmember Russ Johnson, who is a bicyclist and
supporter of trails.

During tight budget times it is especially critical for us to speak up
and let the City Council know that bicycle, pedestrian, and transit
funding are important and deserving ways to spend money. It's pretty
easy, and all you have to do is briefly state your desire for the city
to fund bike routes, trails, or whatever else you want to see built.

Monday, January 26, 6:00 p.m. - North

Some of the critical needs for 2008-2009 include:
* Update the Bike KC master plan
* Connect the Trolley Track and Indian Creek Trails
* Extend the Riverfront Heritage Trail along the Missouri River
levee
* Build a new Shoal Creek Trail between KCMO and Gladstone
* Adequate staffing to plan and implement bike/ped projects
