Hobart Talks Transportation, Bike Lanes, Sidewalks

How to get to and from destinations in Hobart may need to involve bicycle lanes and more sidewalks. That's according to NIRPC Transportation Planning Manager Mitch Barloga who told city officials if those options for short trips aren't available, people will end up driving to locations they could bike or walk to. Barloga says the 'complete streets' philosophy is also meant to accommodate those who are disabled. Hobart held a public input session this week on transportation as talks continue on the city's ten-year comprehensive plan. About 40-percent of participants surveyed during this week's session said they walk or bike in the city a few times a week, while 37-percent said they almost never do so. In addition, Mayor Brian Snedecor noted the idea of whether or not Valparaiso's ChicaGo Dash commuter bus could make a stop in Hobart has been discussed.
