Suggest your favorite KC-area place to bike, walk

The Mid-America Regional Council is asking Kansas City-area cyclists, walkers, and hikers to make a list of their favorite places to walk and ride. Here are the details, according to a St. Joseph News-Press article:
The public is invited to nominate favorite places to bike and walk.

The Mid-America Regional Council has launched an initiative that asks residents to nominate cycling and hiking spots in the Kansas City region that they like. The initiative is part of an exploring Kansas City campaign.

People are encouraged to report why they enjoy the places they nominate. For instance, is there a specific memory associated with this place? Does it possess features that other places in the region do not?

Once the nominations are received, a report will be published. The report will include a regional trails map and a safety handbook for cyclists and pedestrians. Nominations will be accepted until Aug. 15.

The Regional Council seeks to increase public awareness of bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the Kansas City region and the health benefits associated with safe walking and bicycling practices.

To learn more about the Regional Council or to nominate up to 10 favorite places, go to www.marc.org/faveplaces or e-mail places@marc.org. Interested people can also call Andy Graham at (816) 474-4240.
