Bicycle Pedestrian Subcommittee of Dover

The City of Dover's Bicycle Pedestrian Subcommittee was created from the Safety Advisory and Transportation Committee.  They have been tasked with identifying gaps in the bicycle and pedestrian network in Dover and identifying areas where the city can work together with local partners to improve the atmosphere for bicyclist and pedestrians. Typically, public meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at 5:00 pm and held in Dover City Hall.
