Joplin, MO- The City of Joplin is looking for public input on how to make traveling by foot or bike easier, and more accessible. 

The Joplin area transportation study organization is in the process of developing a plan for pedestrian and bike transportation in Jasper and Newton Counties.  The plan will assess bike and pedestrian facilities, necessary improvements and public need.

Taylor Cunningham, an Assistant to Joplin’s City Manager, says, “It’s just a planning project, so there’s no construction specifically associated with it.  We hope that the plan can help councils prioritize where the needs are and where to spend capital dollars later. “

If you’d like to share your ideas, the city is holding a public meeting next Thursday , August 24th from 5 to 7pm at the Joplin Public Library’s community room.
