alternative transportation

Planning for alternative transportation often needs to start on a local level. The City of Newark is re-examining their Bicycle Plan for the City, and have a workshop scheduled for June 18th, to allow public participation. If you can't attend the workshop, but have an interest in the outcome of the hearing, they also have an interactive survey to solicit opinions on biking in Newark. While I think the survey is fairly well put together, and applaud the City for holding a public workshop, I wonder if they would receive somewhat different responses if they had held the hearing while the University of Delaware was still in session. Many of the bicyclists in town are students.
