Bicycle and Pedestrian Pathway Counts
Columbia Association (CA) is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to help count the number of pedestrians, bicyclists and other users on CA’s pathways in the following locations: Columbia Gateway, Jackson Pond, Kendall Ridge, Lake Elkhorn, Lake Kittamaqundi, the southern terminus of Tamar Drive and Wilde Lake Park. By making a two-hour time commitment, you’ll be helping to improve one of the things that makes Columbia special! The bicycle and pedestrian count program will kick-off May 24. Anyone interested in volunteering can fill out a registration form here by Friday, May 2. For more information, please email Scott Templin or call him at 410-715-3166.
Bike Share Feasibility Study
Together, Howard County’s Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) and Columbia Association (CA) have launched a Bike Share Feasibility Study. Through the project webpage, residents can learn more about the project, stay informed of project updates, the benefits of bike sharing, view and comment on an interactive map for suggesting potential station locations and provide feedback on their own bicycling practices and opinions about bike share.
A public meeting will be held on Thursday, May 1 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Owen Brown Community Center (6800 Cradlerock Way in Columbia) to formally present information on the Bike Share Feasibility Study and to gather public input on possible program goals of a bike share in Howard County, as well as potential station locations.
RSVP is requested, but not required.
