FARGO — The Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Council of Governments will soon be holding two virtual public open houses to discuss a bicycle and pedestrian plan update.
The meetings will be from noon to 1 p.m. and from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, and will begin by showing a presentation about the project, which will be followed by a question and answer session.
Every five years, the Metro COG updates the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan, which takes a comprehensive look at the area's bicycle and pedestrian networks. Area plans for the networks have been discussed since 1975, and the community has met to discuss the plan 115 times since its inception.
In addition to the virtual public open houses, the public is also encouraged to take an online project survey and provide comments using the online interactive map.
The plan will incorporate "The Six E's" of bicycle and pedestrian planning: education, encouragement, evaluation and planning, engineering, enforcement and equity.
The Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan update began in June 2021 and is slated for completion in July 2022.
