July, 2021: The Bisbee City Council voted to move forward to get funding for the Lavender Pit shared use path Option B on July 8th at a Special Session meeting. You can see the meeting, the vote, and the presentation on the shared use path that preceded it by Kimley Horne here.
The Bisbee Area Mobility Master Plan was passed unanimously by the Bisbee Planning and Zoning Commission and was sent back to the County Planner for revisions after going to Council. The main concern is that the hiking trails in Old Bisbee be removed from the Plan. This is a plan that will connect the entire City of Bisbee through a network of shared use paths and connect this network to the Sun Corridor Trail. See the Plan below.
