With the community plan completed, Dublin City Council has turned its attention to the parks and recreation master plan.
At a study session Monday night, council discussed indoor and outdoor recreation space limitations, a multi-modal transportation plan, greenways and a community art plan.
…The parks and recreation master plan will require the city to conduct a variety of studies. One mentioned Monday included a multi-modal transportation plan. The study would look at all the types of bikeways and public transportation venues available in the city and make recommendations on what could and should be added.
Specifically, director of parks and open spaces Fred Hahn said there are members of the community who use bicycling as a form of transportation.
“They use bicycles to get from point A to point B,” he said, “and they aren’t concerned with views along the way.”
The study will identify areas of the city where bike lanes may be appropriate. In particular, Hahn mentioned the Central Ohio Innovation Center as a potential area.
“I see it more as new roads and areas where we are building as areas we’d consider,” Chinnici-Zuercher said.
