About the Plan Update

The 2014 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Update is the next phase of making a bicycle, pedestrian and multi-use trail connections in the City. It will be a physical and action-oriented plan that builds upon the 2003 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and will complement the Context Sensitive Street Design Guidelines work that will also be taking place this year.

The Master Plan Update will focus on integrating the on-street and off-street networks identified in past planning efforts to create safe, comfortable transportation corridors that appeal to a wide range of users of all abilities. It will provide the recommended network improvements for Charlottesville’s on-street bicycle and pedestrian corridors, as well as a phasing plan for implementation.

In addition to participating in these meetings, citizens are invited to contribute to the interactive, online wiki-map to identify routes where they currently bike and walk as well as any desired biking and walking routes. A link to the map will be available soon. Stay tuned!
