Olympia will host an open house next week for neighborhoods interested in building new paths for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Potential applicants can learn more about the Neighborhood Pathways program from 6-8 p.m. March 4 at City Hall, 601 Fourth Ave. E.
The program was launched in 2013 as a way to create more options for walkers and bicyclists by building pathways that connect parks, streets and trails. One example is the Woodard Avenue Pathway that connects Rogers Street with West Bay Drive in west Olympia.
Qualifying neighborhoods can apply for grants and do the work themselves, or collaborate with the city and private contractors. Deadline to apply for the program is May 1 and can be done online at olympiawa.gov.
