Mason City, Iowa – The City of Mason City, with its partners RDG Planning and Design and WHKS, Inc., will celebrate the start of the Activate Mason City Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan on May 20, 2013 at 5:30 PM in the Mason City Room of the Mason City Public Library, 225 Second Street SE. The public is invited to this interactive and informative event to learn about and get involved in this important planning process.

The event will include a mini-expo presented by local businesses that serve cyclists and pedestrians with displays, advice and hands-on demonstrations to keep your bike in top shape and encourage you to be active and healthy. At 6:30, consultants from RDG Planning and Design will describe the project and outline opportunities for involvement. The evening will wrap up with a showing of the classic bicycling film, “Breaking Away,” a great family film about bicycling and growing up. Mason City residents are encouraged to attend any or all of these events.

“We are excited about getting this plan off the ground and working with citizens to make Mason City a safe and fun place to get out, move around and enjoy our great community,” said Steven Van Steenhuyse, Mason City Director of Development Services. “The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is an opportunity for us to learn how the public uses our trails and sidewalks and what can be done to improve our non-motorized transportation system. We encourage people of all ages and all levels of interest in walking and biking to attend the kickoff meeting on May 20th and get involved in this planning process.”

The City has contracted with RDG Planning and Design of Des Moines and WHKS, Inc. of Mason City to assist in creating the plan. This project is a collaborative effort between the City, the consultants and the public to identify and prioritize non-motorized transportation needs. The project is expected to be completed in December and will result in a plan to guide decisions for improvements to the City’s trail and sidewalk systems.
