The Logansport Plan Commission will hold a public hearing during their regular monthly meeting on Monday, June 11. During this hearing, the Plan Commission will consider the adoption of the Bike and Pedestrian Plan to the Logansport Comprehensive Plan.
The plan was initiated by Logansport’s Complete Street Committee. City leaders will use the document to plan and prioritize future projects and coordinate regional connectors like the Panhandle Pathway and the Nickel Plate Trail. These infrastructure projects can range from new sidewalks, repairs to current sidewalks, bike lanes, trails and more.
“Bike lanes, sidewalks and trails happen in some areas and not others,” said Planning Director Arin Shaver. “This will help us prioritize and know what’s important to the community for connectivity.”
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan plan was funded through a grant from the Indiana State Department of Health, which awarded $20,000. The Logansport City Council provided a $20,000 match from CEDIT funds.
A public meeting was held in November to kick off the public input process for the plan, which included a website where members of the public could provide feedback.
Shaver will be available at 3:30 p.m. Monday, June 11 in the City Council Chambers to meet with people who want to review the draft and add to the maps before the public hearing.
The Logansport Plan Commission meeting will begin at 4 p.m. Monday in the City Council Chambers on the third floor of the Logansport City Building, 601 E. Broadway. The public is encouraged to attend and express their views.
