(Oct. 5, 2018) A new group productivity tool was introduced and approved by the Ocean City Council Monday at the request of the Ocean City Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.

Members of the committee will now use Slack, a communication channel employed by work groups to correspond and collaborate on a single computer platform.

The website will be used to eliminate the need for long email chains, participants can join or leave channels as needed and can be organized more affectively.

The committee members also have been provided a link to Dropbox, where group files are saved.

A link to the Slack platform will be provided to all members in the event that group discussions need to take place before a regularly scheduled meeting.

Other segments of the overview given to the council included information about GIS Maps, to map safe biking routes throughout the town. Only members of the committee were provided these maps and will be available for internal review regarding the safety of the routes already noted and being considered.

Baltimore Avenue is a road being considered for potential bike safety implementation and installation of signs for bike-friendly awareness.
