Written by 

Community meetings seking input on a regional bike plan will be held in Haywood, Jackson and Swain counties.

• Haywood County from 5-7 p.m., May 31, at Waynesville Recreation Center.

• Swain County from 5-7 p.m., June 12, at Southwestern Community College’s Swain campus.

• Jackson County from 5-7 p.m., June 13, at the public library in Sylva.

The purpose of the meetings is to get feedback from residents about bicycling safety, desired routes, challenging spots, and what types of infrastructure you want to see in your community.  

The Blue Ridge Bike Plan is led by a 25-member executive committee of representatives of local governments, organizations, businesses and community members. Land-of-Sky Regional Council, a multi-county planning and development organization, is developing the plan in partnership with the Southwestern Commission, through a grant from the N.C. Department of Transportation.

A Steering Committee has been collaborating with project staff since November 2011 to develop goals, recommendations and initial findings pertaining to a regional bicycling network. www.BRBP.org.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
