Title

Single Track Bicycle Trail Network Update

 

Body

While Madison is known for its plentiful hard-surface biking infrastructure, natural surface connections and singletrack networks close to neighborhoods can be difficult to find. Natural surface trails, singletrack trails, and bike optimized park facilities encourage access for a range of trail users and riders from the occasional enthusiast to the serious athlete. Natural surface trail networks are shown to improve community health, create equitable access, increase youth engagement, and drive positive economic impacts.

The project includes meeting with key City of Madison agencies, and external partners such as Dane County Parks and Capital Off Road Pathfinders, and gather public input through an online survey, listening sessions, and digital exhibits. The community will have opportunities to review and comment throughout the project.

Parks staff will make a short presentation and answer questions.  Members can learn more about the project by visiting our (draft) story map website here:  https://www.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=fe5fdb76aef540cfbf3457164b3bcfb0# <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.arcgis.com_apps_MapSeries_index.html-3Fappid-3Dfe5fdb76aef540cfbf3457164b3bcfb0-23&d=DwMFaQ&c=byefhD2ZumMFFQYPZBagUCDuBiM9Q9twmxaBM0hCgII&r=aZmt__Y3WoTB-TVekA1hIY6YOnoWV11AWRK4nateDOo&m=WnRlzTaSP4rSrlRftFeyi0ScIItCo7obZORSwbz5-ns&s=qk0PSUhNsSVa1e6xXy2PksHTkEymnGieUTsvqpvmkfk&e=>
