Bike & Pedestrian Committee Seeks Leland Member

 

 

Are you an avid cyclist? Do you want to ensure the Lower Cape Fear maintains and creates safe pedestrian options as the area continues to grow? Do you have ideas for future bike and walking paths?

If so, Leland and the Wilmington Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO) would like your input and assistance.

Leland is currently seeking a Town resident to serve on the WMPO Bicycle and Pedestrian (BikePed) Advisory Committee. The person appointed to this seat would also serve on the Town of Leland’s Transportation Oversight Committee (TOC) as the WMPO BikePed representative.

Both committees work to identify and prioritize needs for bicycle and pedestrian improvements and investments from the Town, as well as state and federal funding, as it becomes available.

The WMPO BikePed Committee meets at 2 p.m. once per month, typically the second Tuesday of the month, in downtown Wilmington. Interested applicants may visit www.wmpo/org/agendas-minutes/ to view prior meeting agendas and discussions. Leland's TOC meets at 1:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of every other month at Leland Town Hall.

For questions related to the WMPO BikePed Committee and/or the TOC, contact Ben Andrea, Director of Planning and Inspections for the Town of Leland, (910) 332-9206 or bandrea@townofleland.com.
