West Metro Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan
The City of Cayce, in partnership with the Central Midlands Council of Governments, City of West Columbia, and Town of Springdale is undertaking a bicycle and pedestrian planning process. Called the West Metro Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan, the Cities will develop a comprehensive plan for the future of pedestrian transportation. Simultaneously, the Cities are also performing a Bike Share Feasibility Study to determine the viability of a bike share system.
During the planning process, the Cities will identify ways to be more pedestrian and bicycle friendly. Creating active transportation access to destinations in the Cities of Cayce, West Columbia and the Town of Springdale, will improve the quality of life for residents, enhance the experience of visitors, and positively impact the region’s health and economic vitality.
As part of the planning process, the Cities need resident feedback! Residents are invited to provide comments and suggestions for new bike and pedestrian routes through an interactive WikiMap. The WikiMap is a web-based mapping system that allows for “crowdsourcing” of data. Residents are able to locate the full length of routes that they enjoy biking and walking, as well as pinpoint destinations of interest, safety concerns, conflict points, and other information relevant to the study process. The WikiMap also allows users to view data input by other users and to agree, disagree, and/or comment on individual items.
Additional opportunities for resident input will be available in the coming months. Updates to the planning process will be available on the City of Cayce’s website and social media pages.
