Park City looks to improve sidewalks, bike paths

Local

Wichita isn’t the only city looking to improve its walking and biking paths.

Park City is now asking its community for suggestions to the pedestrian system.

“We’re a newer community, and we don’t have a lot of sidewalks,” explained assistant city administrator Dana Walden.

The city launched its Pedestrian Connectivity Plan — an opportunity for the city to improve it’s existing sidewalks, but also add more around town.

Officials said Park City partnered with the Wichita Area Metro Planning Organization to receive funding for a consultant, who will put a plan together.

“It has always been something we wanted to look at,” said Walden. “It is the trend now for people to be more active, and out and about in their community.”

Park City is hosting two public meetings today, where residents could provide ideas and suggestions on how biking and walking could be more comfortable around the city.

The meetings are scheduled for noon to 2 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at the Park City Public Library, 2107 E. 61st Street North.

Residents can also take an online survey or add route suggestions to an interactive map on activeparkcity.com.
