La Crosse, WI (WXOW)-- The city of La Crosse is working on a plan to re-vamp area biking and walking trails. And tonight: a chance for the public to weigh in on the new plan.
The city hosted an open house and public comment session. Participants could also submit written suggestions. The last time the trails were re-done was 1976.
In addition to new trails, the plan will include ways to connect the existing trails and better signs to mark the paths.
The committee in charge of the project will review all suggestions from tonight's meeting and adjust the proposal if needed.
"We want to make sure we've got the input from everyone who bikes, everyone who walks. It's not something you can just come from outside and hand it off," said John LaPlante, a traffic engineer. "It's gotta come from the people who live here."
Additional information about the bike and pedestrian plan is available at CityofLaCrosse.org. The bike and pedestrian steering committee hopes to have a final plan by August or September. It will then go before the city council for approval.
