West Lafayette Public Survey

The City of West Lafayette recently applied to be awarded the status of “Bicycle Friendly Community” by the League of American Bicyclists.

In order to further gauge the public’s opinion on our current bicycling accommodations and the overall experience of being a cyclist or pedestrian in West Lafayette, the League has provided us with a survey to distribute to the public.

The City of West Lafayette wants to ensure that all future developments are centered around its people’s needs as much as possible, and this survey is the first step in achieving that goal. We encourage you to share this survey with your friends, family and associates so that we can make cycling in West Lafayette as great an experience as possible.
