Subcommittee Hopes to Connect Bike and Walking Trails to Businesses
Bowie’s Multi-modal Transportation and Public Spaces Subcommittee says there is not enough connectivity between bike and walking trails and commercial shopping centers and businesses. The subcommittee hopes that by connecting these trails to the property line of commercial businesses, these private businesses, in turn, will continue the route for safe spaces for cyclists and pedestrians. Bowie is midway through updating its Master Trails plan. Local connections will encourage and allow residents to get around Bowie more easily without a car. Safety and accessibility are key points to this project.
