Give feedback on Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan: 

The Town of Parker is creating a new master plan that will help promote safe bike and foot travel in our community. The Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan will serve as the Town’s policy document and "road map" to support safe, comfortable and connected bike and pedestrian infrastructure. 

Help shape this planning process through the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan project webpage on the Let's Talk Parker online community engagement platform. There you can learn more about the plan and process, alert the Town to areas of concern for pedestrians and cyclists via an interactive map tool, provide survey feedback and leave additional comments.
