The Wilmington Bicycle Advisory Committee (WBAC), also known as Bike Wilmington, was created to advise and coordinate bike-related initiatives in the city as well as advocate for bicycle transportation and recreation opportunities.
Bike Wilmington welcomes bike enthusiasts of all skill levels to get involved. Committee members actively participate in events like the Wilmington Grand Prix, Bike-to-Work Day, bike surveys, bike infrastructure installation, the Bike Summit as well as supporting various local bike charities and non-profit organizations.
The strength of the committee comes from strong citizen participation. The committee also has the support of numerous City departments including Parks and Recreation, Planning and Development, Police, Public Works, and the Office of the Mayor. Additionally, the committee has representation from the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO), Bike Delaware, the Delaware Bike Council, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), the Delaware Transit Corporation (DART), and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) – all of whom are seen as partners in advancing bike initiatives.
Subject: 2050 RTP Virtual Public Workshop
To: Randi Novakoff
Every four years, the Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) updates its Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The RTP is a fundamental document for our region (New Castle County and Cecil County). Not only does it outline our region’s long-range transportation vision, it also lists all future projects that we anticipate in the next 20 to 30 years.
Now is your opportunity to influence the document that will guide transportation decision-making for the next twenty years!
To kick-off the plan, WILMAPCO is holding a Virtual Public Workshop on Friday, November 2 from 12-1pm. Login from anywhere to learn about and have your say in our transportation future!
