Big Bear Lake, CA, October 27, 2012 – The Big Bear Valley Pedestrian, Bicycle, and Equestrian Master Plan process is underway, with the goal of developing a blueprint for a community of neighborhoods enjoyable and safe for people on foot, bike, horseback and other modes of transportation. It will also be a guide for attracting and building businesses related to the recreation industry. On November 3, the public will have a chance to give input on the master plan during Community Field Day. Residents can participate in activities depending on their interests – be it a horseback ride, a senior walk, or a hike, run or bike ride on a trail – then tell the City what they can do to improve the experience. For more details on schedule and locations, contact Siri Eggebraten at (909) 866-5831 or
