Continuing the Conversation to Improve Walking & Biking in Freedom:
Freedom Area Residents Invited To Discuss Linking Community & Neighborhood Destinations by Foot and by Bicycle
March 13, 2013 - 7 pm - South Carroll Senior & Community Center
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 – Freedom area residents should plan to join this follow-up conversation with Comprehensive Planning staff on the Freedom Area Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plan. In October, Freedom-area residents shared their ideas and experiences as vitally important background for developing the community’s first-ever Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plan. This discussion will be a critical next step in creating an area-wide approach to make traveling in, around, and across Freedom by foot or by bicycle more comfortable, accessible, and predictable in the future. This master plan will develop strategies for improving Freedom’s walking and biking network through several means:
- Identifying key locations needing improved connections for walking & biking routes
- Prioritizing missing links or incomplete routes restricting access to community destinations
- Targeting the most effective opportunities for leveraging resources to complete priority projects
The Freedom Area Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plan will move forward quickly; the initial plan review will take place during summer 2013. It will develop a set of prioritized recommendations and coordinated projects suggested for implementation through several means – as improvements completed during site and subdivision planning and construction, as individual improvements implemented with targeted grant or project funding or through regular capital budgeting with the Community Investment Plan.
The timing of this bicycle and pedestrian master plan effort is critical since it will both inform and link with other in-progress Freedom area planning projects. These include the Maryland Department of Transportation grant-funded Eldersburg-Sykesville bikeway analysis and the ongoing update of Freedom’s comprehensive plan. Notably, this will be the first bicycle and pedestrian master plan to define priorities and coordinate needed sidewalk, path, and trail enhancements for any portion of Carroll County.
