Blue Springs, Mo. – Blue Springs Parks & Recreation Department will hold a series of three public hearings in regard to future plans for bike and trail routes within the City. The City recently completed construction and opened phase I of its bike and trail system over a year ago. The current planning process is designed to gather public opinion about facilities constructed in phase I and to solicit input for the next phase of development.
Schedule for public hearings will be from 6-7:30 p.m. on the following days:
Thursday, August 11 District 1 Brittany Hill Middle School, 2701 NW 1st Street
Thursday, August 25 District 2 Blue Springs Freshman Center, 2103 NW Vesper Street
Thursday, September 8 District 3 Cordill-Mason Elementary School, 4001 SW Christiansen Road
The open house format and information will be identical at each hearing so if residents cannot attend the hearing in their district they are encouraged to attend one of the other hearings. Participants will have the opportunity to review the current bike route and trail locations, chart on maps where they would like to see future improvements, and complete a short survey to help determine their personal or family use/interest, and priorities for the next phase.
We encourage the public to attend, everyone from serious or recreational cyclists to novice trail users are welcome. Information gathered at these public hearings will be used in the future to develop and project budgets for additional phases of construction.
