WILLIAMSPORT, Lycoming County – Do you walk, bike, or run the trails system connecting Williamsport, South Williamsport, Loyalsock Township, and Montoursville? If so, then Lycoming County Planning and Community Development (PCD) and the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership (SGP) want to hear from you via their newly released online survey.
Open until March 31st, the survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete and focuses on the trail network that includes the Williamsport and South Williamsport River Walk, the Loyalsock Bikeway connecting Faxon to the green Montoursville Bridge, and the Montoursville Bikeway connecting the green Montoursville Bridge to the Walmart shopping center (passing Indian Park).
Multiple-choice questions inquire on [among others] how and when you utilize the trail(s), identifying signage needs, and pinpointing challenges along the trail system regarding accessing and navigating the system.
Interested survey respondents can visit the website: bit.ly/lyco-trails.
This user survey is a part of a larger effort to brand and establish a cohesive system of wayfinding/signage for both on and off-street transportation throughout the multimodal system.
The catalyst for the effort arose as a result of both entities receiving public feedback through past community efforts such as the 2019 Heart of Williamsport and the Chamber lead ‘Grow Williamsport’ campaign which noted the challenges associated with utilizing and navigating the trail system.
The public survey joins a roster of additional outreach initiatives taking place both on and off the trail throughout the month of March and into early April. Residents are encouraged to share the survey through their local networks to help gain additional feedback to guide the joint effort.
All information submitted will be utilized to inform efforts and provide the greatest potential for a successful project outcome.
Please visit bit.ly/lyco-trails to participate in the survey.
Funding for this project was provided in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, for their financial support of the project via the Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2) and Environmental Stewardship Fund.
