Officials unveiled a version of the East End Bike Plan during a virtual town hall meeting Wednesday.

The map shows where community members and data on Houston’s deadly streets dictate there should be more bike lanes, a vision brought together over months of public input and analysis.

The plan was put together by Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia’s office and the East End District. The entirety of the plan is in the city of Houston, but Garcia – an elected official of Harris County – wants to lay the groundwork so the city and East End District can hit the ground running, according to Gail Delaughter of Houston Public Media.

“This is a huge opportunity to make sure we’re connecting bikers and pedestrians with area businesses to help offer economic development and continued success of mom-and-pop shops in the neighborhood,” he said in 2020.
