The Bike-Ped Plan was completed in 2014 and was the result of interested citizens, multiple non-governmental organizations, and governmental agencies working together to create a comprehensive plan for the development of a seamless, interconnected, and integrated multi-modal transportation and recreation system for the Blaine County Community. The Bike-Ped Plan is being actively used to improve transportation choices, enhance economic development, and create healthy communities in Blaine County.
“We were really happy to have been able to assist the Blaine County project team in creating an award-winning master plan for the future development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. It has already been used to improve pedestrian safety at a dangerous crosswalk in Ketchum and to pass important funding measures in the City of Hailey,” said Jennifer Zung, project manager for Harmony Design & Engineering. “We love working in small mountain communities similar to our own,” she added.
Representatives from Mountain Rides and Harmony Design & Engineering traveled to the Idaho Smart Growth annual awards celebration on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at the Owyhee Place in Boise, Idaho.
