ACTION ALERT: Bonita Beach Road Vision Implementation – What’s at Stake for Biking and Walking

If you live in Bonita Springs and support a more walkable and bikeable community and a multi-modal transportation system, your voices are needed on THURSDAY Jan. 19th at the City's Local Planning Agency (LPA) meeting.  If you're unable to attend, send an email to the LPA prior to the meeting, and/or email Bonita City Council in support of this effort. Thank you!

What: Bonita Springs Local Planning Agency:  BBR Vision and Comp Plan revisions
When: Thursday January 19th @ 9am
Where: Bonita Springs City Council Chambers

You may have already heard that the City of Bonita Springs took a major step last year to envision the many possibilities to increase biking, walking, and multimodal transportation when it contracted with Toole Design Group to develop a vision for Bonita Beach Road. The result of that visioning was documented in a Final Report that emphasizes safe multi-modal transportation, an extensive multi-use pathway, human scale design, increased road networks, efficient movement of cars and people, and enhancements to the aesthetic quality of the corridor. You can view the Toole Design's entire BBR Vision Study final report or their PowerPoint presentation.

The Bonita Springs Local Planning Agency (LPA) is now considering how to implement the vision into the City’s comprehensive plan. The LPA will provides its recommendation to the City Council. Because this is an important step, your voice is essential. Let the LPA know that you support safe transportation design and that you support implementing the vision into the comprehensive plan.
