On Saturday, August 29, cyclists and active transportation advocates joined Bike Austin and Friends of The Grove at La Mancha Tex-Mex to participate in a design charrette to share ideas with the developers of The Grove at Shoal Creek.
The meeting included a presentation on the critical components of a successful active transportation infrastructure.
The gathering also included workshops to generate ideas for designing the best networks, streets and facilities for bicycle riders in and around The Grove at Shoal Creek.
The final stage of the meeting included a group discussion for general comments and feedback about bike-friendly transportation planning.
The goal was to make the future community the most bike-friendly in Austin.
Participants got a chance to help design safer and more robust accommodations for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users in and around The Grove.
