BPAB partners with the City of Conway to recommend ways the city can become and remain:

  1. An official Bicycle-Friendly Community as designated by the League of American Bicyclists,
  2. An official Walk-Friendly Community as designated by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center and the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, and
  3. A community that seeks to achieve the federal and state goals of the Safe Routes to Schools program.

In order to achieve these goals, BPAB collaborates with stakeholders across the community to develop our City’s success in the following five areas:

  1. Equitable transportation initiatives that benefit all demographic groups, with particular attention to ensuring safe, healthy, and fair outcomes for low-income individuals, people of color, and individuals with disabilities.
  2. Engineering of streets to include bicycle facilities (lanes, sharrows, etc), sidewalks and to expand paved trail networks;
  3. Educational efforts to help bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists, and property owners understand their rights and responsibilities toward making streets and sidewalks safe and accessible to all;
  4. Encouraging the citizens of Conway to increase bicycling and walking through events and activities; and
  5. Evaluating our progress in responding to the needs of bicyclists and pedestrians in our community and developing plans based on realistic goals for the future.
