Community members are invited to attend open houses on the final conceptual design developed for the 21st Street and 13th Street Bicycle Boulevards. Open houses will be held on Wednesday, May 15 and Thursday, May 16 at the following locations:
- Wednesday, May 15 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Meeting in the City Commission Room at City Hall (6 E. 6th Street)
- Thursday, May 16 from 4 – 6 p.m.
Meeting at the East Lawrence Recreation Center (1245 E. 15th Street)
Open houses will be hosted in a come-and-go format where attendees can review and discuss the final conceptual design with project staff and the design consultant. Both open houses will cover the same content.
The Bicycle Boulevards design has evolved to account for safety considerations, best practices, and public input. Feedback from previous open houses in February and March 2019 as well as from Lawrence Listens surveys was incorporated into the final conceptual design.
For anyone unable to attend an open house, the Bicycle Boulevards design will also be made available for review online at lawrenceks.org/bike-blvds starting the week of May 13. Feedback on the final conceptual design can be provided online through a Lawrence Listens survey. The survey will be available once the final conceptual design has been shared online.
Project staff will present the final conceptual design to Transportation Commission on Monday, June 3. A presentation to City Commission will follow.
