The Kingsport Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization (MTPO) last updated its regional bicycle and pedestrian plan in 2012. A plan update is currently underway with the final plan submittal scheduled for summer of 2021.  As part of the planning process, the MTPO will be kicking off the second round of public engagement with a live virtual workshop on April 8 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  The MTPO will discuss the findings from the first public workshop, the draft network recommendations, and additional ways the public can get involved.  A Q&A period will follow the workshop presentation.

Those wishing to participate may access the workshop at the Microsoft Teams link below:
