Be Part of Harrisburg’s Comprehensive Plan Process
Harrisburg officials are developing a comprehensive plan for the City and public input is an important part of the planning process. People who live, work and play in Harrisburg are encouraged to attend public meetings and submit their ideas on the beHBG interactive web tool. This site works much like a Facebook page where you can add comments and “like” ideas submitted by others. Those ideas with the most “likes” will receive greater consideration when the plan is being finalized. Biking is a big component of the plan so input from cyclists is especially important. The first step is to register at www.beHBG.com. Then view the ideas posted and “like” those you like and add your own ideas. You will also get email updates on meetings and other important information once you register.
Camp Hill on Track to Becoming a Bicycle Friendly Community
Camp Hill Borough is in the process of submitting an application to receive Bicycle Friendly Community Status. In order to be eligible, they must meet the criteria set by the League of American Bicyclists. Officials, residents and other interested persons are participating on committees that will address LAB’s 5 E’s: Education, Enforcement, Encouragement, Engineering, and Evaluation. If successful, Camp Hill will become the first BFC in the Capital Region and it is hoped that other communities will follow their example. Want to help? Contact Tim Poole at email@example.com
There are also categories for Bicycle Friendly Businesses, Universities and States. More information about the Bicycle Friendly program can be found at http://bikeleague.org/bfa
