The mission of the Carbondale Bicycle Pedestrian and Trails Commission is to create a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community. The commission makes recommendations to the Town Board of Trustees that educate, promote, and develop safe and effective programs and infrastructure to encourage bicycle and pedestrian use.
Bike and pedestrian issues may include ensuring all town policies, plans, codes and programs are updated and implemented to take advantage of every opportunity to create a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly community; educate and develop programs to encourage bicycle and pedestrian transportation; improve the environment and reduce vehicle congestion; educate all road users to share the road and interact safely.
Bike and pedestrian trails use can enhance and promote recreational activities and further contribute the quality of life in the community and improve the health and well being of the population by promoting routine physical activity.
BPTC will establish information programs to promote bike and nonmotorized mobility for all purposes, and to communicate the many benefits of biking and pedestrian trail use to residents and businesses. Educate cyclists of all ages how to ride safely in any area from single-track trails, BMX parks, multi-use trails and congested town streets.
