Big news in a small town: Durham is hiring a consultant to "create a comprehensive bicycle plan that could eventually lead to more bike lanes, connected bike paths and more bicycling"
Anybody out there in 'BikeForums land' have experience with something like this? (Ron? Steve?)
I'm a bit apprehensive myself, being a natural cynic - but I'd like to hear if anybody has anecdotal evidence of such a venture yielding positive results. Durham had created a "comprehensive plan" years ago, and we're still struggling with some of its consequences.
