Kansas City, Missouri officials are schedule public meetings to solicit feedback on the city's comprehensive bicycle master plan.

There will be four meetings to find ways to improve the plan, said Joseph Blankenship, event coordinator.

"We're trying to figure out how the community wants to see biking progress in Kansas City as not only a recreational tool but as a real transportation option," Blankenship said.

The City is leveraging $2.3 million in federal transportation funds for several on-street bike facilities. Construction for the project is scheduled to take place in 2017 and 2018.

The first public meeting is Tuesday from 6 - 8 p.m. at Avila University’s Whitfield Conference Room at 11901 Wornall Rd. 

Officials suggest people follow the project on Twitter using @KCMOPlanning and #KCBikePlan.
