Wellfleet Bike and Walkways Forum – February 15, 2021

On Monday, February 15th , 2021, at 7 pm, the Wellfleet Bike & Walkways Committee and the Wellfleet Community Forum will jointly sponsor a virtual meeting to gather suggestions from the public regarding bikeway routes through Wellfleet toward Truro. 

 In light of Town opposition, the State has suspended its original plan to end the Rail Trail at Route 6, and has deferred to the Town to consider other routes.  The Town Bike & Walkways Committee is preparing a systematic analysis of alternative bikeway routes through Wellfleet to Truro to objectively compare how well the various alternatives meet pre-defined goals and objectives.  The Committee has researched bikeway guidelines and the best practices found in successful studies around the state and the country — but a local study also needs local inputs. 

The Committee wants to incorporate local interests unique to Wellfleet so the analysis can yield the best-fit solution.  The committee wants to hear the public’s ideas and suggestions so they can be factored into the upcoming study. 

What goals and objectives do you believe a bikeway through Wellfleet to Truro should fulfill?  What alternative routes should be considered in the analysis? 

The forum’s aim will not be to critique or assess any specific alternatives at this time, but rather to collect ideas from the public for the upcoming study.
