As usual, the City of Eugene InMotion Newsletter is full of information this month, including links to a very important public comment process. I quote: (emphasis mine)
Public Comment sought for Proposed Eugene Off-Street Path Projects
The federally-funded Transportation Enhancement program has historically funded many off-street path projects in Eugene. In the current round of funding, the Oregon Department of Transportation is considering two projects in Eugene out of about 85 applications in total. The public comment period for the Transportation Enhancement (TE) project selection process is now open and will continue through Jan. 28, 2011. The TE program is very competitive, so it is important to weigh in on these projects if you have any comments. Comments will be accepted through an internet survey that is accessible via the ODOT Local Government Section website or directly at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TE_Public_Comments_Survey_2010. The ODOT Local Government Section web site also has links to the list of projects under consideration, and to copies of the TE applications.
The above mentioned projects are different from the ones recently covered on WBE. Needless to say, positive public input will really help Eugene receive the funding. Read the embedded InMotion for more information.
After the jump I have also embedded the BikeLane Coalition Update, partially headlined: “Bike parking in Eugene Brings Debate; Media Ties “Bike Bridge” to Theft; Bike Tip: Lubricants.”
Both preview last week’s presentation by Mia Burke, which will betray to the reader the slightly dated aspect of this re-post. Sorry, last week was a busy week for us! (WBE is run by clowns, remember?)
