North Shore Greenway Bike Path Study

During the Council’s Fiscal Year 2020 Budget review CM Molina asked the Council to appropriate funds for the extension of the North Shore Greenway Bike Path from its terminus at Lower Paia Park to Hookipa Beach Park.
The Department of Public Works contracted for the study and has completed a draft of the study on May 25, 2021. 
Five potential routes have been identified and are included in Figure 1 of the attached study.
I welcome comments on the draft study, then in the near future, we can hold a community meeting to review the study.
