For Immediate Release
Date: January 12, 2016
The City of Savannah will host a public meeting regarding bicycles in Forsyth Park on Thursday, January 14 at 6 p.m. at the Savannah Civic Center Bryan Room.
The purpose of this meeting is to gather public input on the proposed revision to the existing Bicycle Ordinance. The proposed ordinance revision would eliminate all foot propelled vehicles (such as bicycles, unicycles, tricycles, quadricycles and skateboards) from being operated on all walkways, sidewalks and pedestrian thoroughfares in and around Forsyth Park. The only exception would be children less than 12 years of age when supervised by an adult, provided they yield to pedestrians.
Currently, bicycles are prohibited from the center walkway in Forsyth Park between the Fountain to just south of the playgrounds adjacent to the Fort.
