DELPHOS — The Allen County Bike and Pedestrian Task Force and the Delphos Creating Healthy Communities Coalition need help gathering data on the number of pedestrians and bicyclists in the city of Delphos. This data is crucial for obtaining funds to provide safe travels for local residents, according to a statement.

For the fifth year, the Allen County Bike and Pedestrian Task Force, Allen County Public Health, Lima-Allen County Regional Planning Commission and Activate Allen County are enlisting volunteers and organizations to help count the number of people bicycling and walking throughout Allen County. These counts will be collected through Sunday.
