Fruita to show plan for cyclists, pedestrians

The city of Fruita will reveal a list of suggested improvements to its bicycle and pedestrian system during an open house this week.

City officials are studying the need and locations for pedestrian walkways, crosswalks, trails, transit stops and bicycle lanes, as well as safety issues for bicyclists and pedestrians. They’re also considering how to enhance safety for children walking or biking around schools.

After hosting an open house in January, the city asked residents to fill out surveys detailing the types of improvements they’d like to see. A total of 97 people completed an online bicycle survey, while 68 filled out the pedestrian survey.

“Now that we have a list of suggested improvements, we need to prioritize that list according to the wishes of our residents and the reality of our finances,” Fruita Community Development Director Dahna Raugh said.

The open house is scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Fruita Community Center, 324 N. Coulson St.
