The "Bike LKN" advocacy group is encouraging folks to bicycle to the meeting.
Bicycle advocacy is expected to be one of the discussed topics. A group of active citizens have recently organized and are gaining momentum in the area of pursing bicycle friendly roadways and green-ways in the Cornelius and Lake Norman area.
Read more from our earlier coverage when the Cornelius Town Board adopted the Bike! Cornelius Master Plan: "Board approves plans to make Cornelius a top bicycling destination" The town currently has 8.2 miles of bicycle facilities, including just over 2 miles of bike lanes and about 6 miles of greenways and side paths. The Bike Cornelius! plan recommends expanding these to a comprehensive network of bicycle facilities, all of which would total 97.4 miles (see map for details).
Michael Archer, member of the Bike LKN group and OTC resident states,
"Cornelius folks (and anyone else interested), please join your neighbors as we 'BIKE-IN' to Thursday evening's Commissioner Connect event at Brick Row. Ride on over, and be sure to carry your bike helmet in with you (just a little visual reminder that some of us really do ride our bicycles to and from destinations here in town)."

I live here in Old Town Cornelius and absolutely love our area's unique character. My life's calling is to work to bring art and culture to the forefront of everyday life. I work full-time for Bella Love, Inc and taking care of my adorable son, Kipton.
