The public has a chance to suggest ideas about safe pedestrian and biking areas in Hamilton.

The Non-motorized Transportation Plan is being developed by the City of Hamilton, and a public comment meeting is set for Thursday, April 26 from 6pm to 8pm.

It's a hands-on workshop, according to officials, where those attending will be able with map out possible bike facilities, walking areas and other improvements.

The maps will help the project team come up with a final plan that builds on the recently completed Hamilton Transportation Plan Update.

The city has already been improving sidewalks in a multi-year project through the three Wards. And a major plan has been developed for the Fairgrounds Road to Hamilton High School.

The meeting will be at Hamilton City Hall, upstairs in the community room at 223 South 2nd Street from 6pm to 8pm.
