Bicycle Master Plan
The Georgetown Bicycle Master Plan was approved Dec. 10, 2019 by City Council on second reading. The plan, which is a blueprint for future transportation projects and educational efforts for a safe and well-connected bicycle network, was adopted by ordinance as an amendment to the 2030 Comprehensive Plan. At the Dec. 10 meeting, the Plan was dedicated to Tommy Ketterhagen, an avid cyclist from Georgetown who tragically lost his life in 2017 while cycling on Patriot Way in Georgetown.
Here is the Georgetown Bicycle Master Plan approved by City Council on Dec. 10, 2019:
