Updates are at the bottom:

For those of you who prefer to move about town by foot or pedal - especially in Mount Pleasant - consider dropping in to the town's public feedback session on the draft of its comprehensive bicycle/pedestrian plan.

The public drop-in session will be between 5:30 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5, at Town Hall Council Chambers. The Town wants to hear from all of you, so come in and voice your opinions.

Mount Pleasant Town Hall Council Chambers are located at 100 Ann Edwards Lane, right behind Whole Foods.

Update December 19, via Charleston Moves:

The Town of Mount Pleasant held a productive drop-in feedback session for their bike and pedestrian plan on December 5.

Those who believe in foot and pedal power showed up in droves. The estimated turnout of more than 200 people created a high, positive energy level in the room which seemed to impress Mayor Swails and the council members in attendance. We are pleased that the Town now has an idea just how passionate its residents are for safe bike and pedestrian connectivity. "A bike lane doesn't do much for you if you can't safely get to your chosen destination", said Tom Bradford, Charleston Moves' director.

There was a flurry of people filling out comment cards and making personal notations on enlarged street maps. If you were there and didn't have a chance to turn in a comment card - or if you couldn't be there and would like to write in your comments - we urge you to e-mail Kevin Mitchell at the Town.
