UL Lafayette's Office of Sustainability and Lafayette Consolidated Government's Planning Division now has a better understanding of what the community needs after a bike and pedestrian work shop.

The event follows the extension of the UL Bikeway Connection, which is aimed to create a safer way for people to get around the city.

Organizers gathered input from students, faculty and staff about local amenities and non-motorized connectivity.

Director of Sustainability at UL Lafayette, Gretchen Vanicor tells KATC, "We're focusing on bike and pedestrian routes to improve safety and quality of life and to make sure everyone just feels comfortable to really get out there to bike where they need to go to walk where they want to go whether it's to go to a restaurant, to come to work to come to class or to get to a park nearby. We want to make sure everyone's safe and comfortable.
