Langlade County is currently seeking input on bicycling and walking throughout the county and in its towns, villages and cities. Two tools are available to help residents provide their input: an online survey and an interactive mapping exercise. All county residents are encouraged to complete one or both of these tools at http://www.ncwrpc.org/langlade/bike-ped/index.html by JULY 31st.
This input will help determine what types of bicycling and walking improvements will be recommended in the Langlade County Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. The plan process was kicked off earlier this year by the County Forestry, Recreation & Parks Department with the help of the North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRPC) and the guidance of an advisory group of Langlade County officials, citizens, and stakeholders. The project is being funding through a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
The NCWRPC is a voluntary association of governments created in 1973 under Wisconsin Statute 66.0309 for the purpose of preparing plans for the physical development of the Region and its communities; to conduct research; to serve as a data center; and as a forum for communication, cooperation and coordination among federal, state, regional, and local interests, and to provide technical services to its members in a 10-county area, which includes Langlade County.
