Subject: Bicycle and Pedestrian Listserv for RTP

Description: Research Triangle Park, NC is home to over 160 companies employing over 42,000 workers. Each day, these employees must travel congested roads to get to work. As housing developments move closer to the Park, more employees are choosing to travel by bike or foot.

Due to Research Triangle Park's location on the border of Durham and Wake Counties, and therefore within two separate metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), it has sometimes been difficult in the past to find all the planning information that is relevant to the Park, especially for bicycle and pedestrian facilities for commuters and exercisers. Similarly, it has been difficult for planners to figure out how to get feedback from those people who might use bicycle and pedestrian facilities in order to better meet their needs.

This listserv was started in August, 2004 to provide a way for local planners, municipalities, and related groups to convey information on bicycle and pedestrian issues in the RTP area to interested area citizens. It is also intended to be a way for citizens to submit feedback, new suggestions, and problems with existing facilities back to those groups, in order to improve bike and ped facilities and planning in RTP.

Thank you to everyone who has participated for making this such a success.
