Sun Valley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - One of the last votes of confidence needed to move forward with the community plan, the Sun Valley City Council voted in favor of the Blaine County Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan.
The Master Plan is intended to provide a tool to help organizations in Blaine County work together to create an interconnected transportation and recreation system.
“The resolution that the council just voted on and passed today incorporates Sun Valley and includes us with a county wide transportation plan, primarily for bicycles. It enhances our already extensive bicycle paths throughout Sun Valley and the community and affords another mode of transportation to our citizens, to alleviate the loads on the highways and our bus service,” said Dewayne Briscoe, Sun Valley Mayor.
By adopting the resolution, there is no financial obligation on behalf of the City of Sun Valley at this time. They are just showing their support and each project will be voted on a case by case basis.
“Tonight was one of the last resolutions of support in all of the different governments that have been involved. So, we’ve had approval from the City of Ketchum, City of Hailey, Blaine County, and we are now wrapping up with the City of Sun Valley. So it was great to have their support and complete that process. And now we move forward to figure out how to get work done that’s identified in the plan,” said Jason Miller, Executive Director at Mountain Rides.
The Master Plan represents an ongoing community vision. It will be reviewed, revised, and updated annually.
This plan was completed by Harmony Design & Engineering in May of 2014.
