Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee originally formed in March 2009 (as the PaTHs 4 Bethlehem Committee) with a primary focus on addressing bicycle and pedestrian mobility in the Town. The committee's mission is to advise the Town, educate the community, and advocate for opportunities to improve mobility and connectivity for bicyclists and pedestrians in Bethlehem.

Lawn Signs

In an effort to increase awareness for bicycle and pedestrian safety in Town, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee has developed and is distributing 'Please Look Out For Us' lawn signs. The signs can be picked up in Room 203 of Town Hall, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The lawn signs can only be placed on residential zoned properties and must be set back at least 5 feet from the sidewalk or road right-of-way.
