Springfield Looks for Ways to Improve Biking and Walking in The CitySPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – Improving access to bicycle and pedestrian paths in Springfield was the discussion of the night Thursday at the “Armoury Quadrangle Civic Associations” monthly meeting.
Officials from the city and MassBike were on hand to address what keeps people from biking and walking, and what can be done about it in neighborhoods and downtown.
“The benefit of having a pedestrian and bicycle plan is that you basically give a city the layouts of how to implement a plan and different infrastructure and introduce a culture that is really already existing around the country,” said Jimmy Piereria of MassBike.
People talked about what they see as problem areas and what could be done to improve them.
