SALT LAKE CITY — Mayor Ralph Becker and the city's transportation director, Robin Hutcheson, have invited residents to weigh in on recommendations under consideration as part of the current update of the citywide bicycle/pedestrian master plan.

Based on nearly 1,000 responses to an online survey and hundreds of comments received at events around the city over the summer, preliminary recommendations have been developed for the future of walking and bicycling in Salt Lake City over the next 20 years.

The plan Update, a project of Salt Lake City's Transportation Division, will provide a blueprint for the development of bikeways, paths and trails, pedestrian crossings, and education and enforcement programs.

A virtual version of the open house, including the preliminary recommendations, will be available through Dec. 1 for public input on the project website at walkbikeslc.com/.

All public input will be incorporated in a draft master plan document, which will be available for review over the winter, prior to formal hearings and adoption by the City Council.
