Calling All Laurelhurst Bicyclists For Neighborhood Bike Master Plan Meeting Tomorrow

We received this information on a special bicycle meeting tomorrow from 7-8pm at 3638 49th Avenue NE (Catherine Henning's home):

An interested group of neighbors is starting to work on improving the bicycling environment in Laurelhurst and would like your input and ideas.
We are hosting a “Bike Party" where you can learn more about our neighborhood bike routes included in the new Bicycle Master Plan.  The bike meeting  is to involve interested neighbors in sharing their concerns and ideas with completing the BMP and cycling in and around Laurelhurst. 
The New Bicycle Master Plan outlines routes through Laurelhurst neighborhood and the park that connect to Laurelhurst Elementary School, the new ramp at the intersection of 40th Avenue NE and Sand Point Way with a separated bike line in front of Children's' Hospital (a great connection), as well as the new signal crossing at Sand Point Way and NE 52nd Avenue NE. 
The routes include shared use routes, off road paths, through Laurelhurst Park, and possible greenway connections.    
Some of the routes were suggested in the Livable Streets Initiative, a collaborative study  completed in 2009-2010 involving Children's Hospital, Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) and other NE Seattle neighborhoods. 
Come and share your biggest concerns about biking in Laurelhurst. Refreshments will be served!
