County to host open house meeting regarding Comprehensive Bike Plan

An open house-style public information meeting on Kenosha County’s Comprehensive Bike Plan will be held  from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18th, in the Public Hearing Room at the Kenosha County Center, 19600 75th St., Bristol.

From the announcement of the meeting from the office of County Executive Jim Kreuser:

Ann Freiwald, an associate with Alta Planning + Design, Madison, and Sarah Gaskell, planning manager with the Wisconsin Bike Fed, which are both leading the comprehensive bike planning process for the county, will be on hand to answer questions and listen to feedback from the public about the project. “We are looking to develop a blueprint that we can follow as resources become available to improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities across the county,” Kreuser said. “It is critical to hear from the public about how they would like to see the plans progress.” A Comprehensive Bike Plan Committee, made up of representatives from most of the municipalities, and of avid bike riders, has also been meeting to help guide the planning process. You may also share thoughts and comments about changes or improvements to bike and pedestrian facilities county-wide via email to For more information about the open house, call 262-653-2600.

    Has there been any follow-up after this meeting? I wasn’t able to attend, however, I would have LOVED to ask the “avid bike riders” why they don’t have to pay for licenses to be on the road; and why they don’t follow the rules of the road either. I have never, in over 50 years of driving, ever seen a bike rider come to a stop at a stop sign. Why??? Quite frankly, I think Jim Kreuser did this whole County a huge disservice by taking away from the road improvements in the budget, and stick any money into these bike paths. Obviously Jim doesn’t live west of the interstate, does he? There are shoulders on every road – people in cars/trucks need to be observant; BUT, people on bikes ALSO need to be observant AND FOLLOW THE SIGNS, just like vehicles do. THAT in itself will alleviate many accidents.
