Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan

Through a 20-year master planning process, we are committed to increasing walking and cycling in our community. Our goal is to help more people walk and ride bikes efficiently and safely throughout our community. By increasing our walking and cycling, we improve the health of our community, reduce the number of cars on the road, free up parking spaces and reduce air pollution. Recreational opportunities will also be enhanced as we develop and promote expanded routes.
