Hamilton Developing Walking and Biking Route Plan
HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) — The consulting company hired by Hamilton officials to create a non-motorized transportation plan for the city has released its draft recommendations.
The Ravalli Republic reports that the draft is an early glimpse of what could eventually become a guide for a pedestrian and bicycle network.
Its release follows an April meeting where about 35 Hamilton residents offered suggestions on what would make the community better for walkers and bikers.
Joe Gilpin of Bozeman’s Alta Planning and Design says residents made clear they want a trail that runs along the river from one end of town to the other and more sidewalks that run east-west.
An administrative draft is planned for July so residents can make additional comments before the city council makes a final decision.
