Wichita leaders are asking for help as the City develops a new bicycle master plan.
The council is trying to identify ways to make bicycling safer, easier and more convenient. The plan will also create new facilities hoping to boost bicycling across Wichita. The council is considering the improvements after Wichitans rated bicycle travel "below satisfaction" in a recent survey.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will help fund the project.
Concerned residents are being asked to take an online survey to identify their favorite routes. Meetings will also be held to provide more information on the proposed changes.
A bicycle master plan open house is scheduled at City Hall, 455 N. Main, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4.
