The City of Sugar Land is looking for citizen input as they craft a master plan for pedestrian and bicycle usage. Residents may visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/pedbike to take a survey, provide feedback, complete an online mapping activity, sign up for e-mail updates and learn about future public meetings. The next meeting is scheduled on June 25, from 6-8 p.m., at City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd. North.
The updated plan will identify a network of pedestrian and bicycle routes throughout Sugar Land. The intent is to utilize existing and future routes for both recreational and mobility-related purposes.
Based on public feedback, the plan should identify origins and destinations; determine where better connections are needed; specify how connections should be made (i.e., on-street, off-street); identify preferred route types (i.e., trails, bike lanes, shared lanes); and improve challenging crossings such as U.S.
Highway 59, State Highway 6, U.S. Highway 90A, the Brazos River, and the railroad.
