WHERE: The Farm and Home Center (1383 Arcadia Road, Lancaster, PA 17601)
This event is to kick-off the Lancaster Active Transportation Plan, which is a collaboration of Lancaster County, Lancaster Inter-Municipal Committee (LIMC), and Lancaster City. Working with Alta Planning + Design, the Lancaster Active Transportation Plan will focus on 5 key projects: a Bike Network within Lancaster City, the Greater Lancaster Heritage Pathway, 2 Greenways to the north and the south of the city, and an interconnected Active Transportation Network for the county overall.
Active Transportation is defined as human-powered transportation, such as walking, bicycling, using strollers, wheelchairs/mobility devices, skateboarding, rollerblading, or that engages people in healthy physical activity while they travel from place to place. Active Transportation supports transit use as well, since many people reach transit stops using active travel modes.
