On Wednesday evening, July 27, at 7pm we will be hosting a presentation in which we will propose the Bikeway. It will consist of a protected multi-use pathway (walking, running and cycling) from the Fairgrounds through town to Kess Creek Park, with links to JPMC's walking path and to Kiwanis Park. No money or sponsorships will be solicited. It is intended only to discuss the feasibility and gauge the level of community interest in the project, and to start the ball rolling if enough interest is generated. The presentation will be held in the Council Chambers at Mayfield's City Hall.
In a recent survey among mayors across the nation, more than 70% cited more funding for protected bikeways and bike lanes as one of their top priorities. A protected multi-use pathway (for the sake of convenience we are calling this a "Bikeway" for the moment) is certainly not a new concept, but it is timely for our community and would connect most of the neighborhoods to one corridor running through the town from north to south.
