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 Streets that Work Plan 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.

Public Process 

The first public workshop was held on June 18 (4:30-6:30PM) at City Space. To kick off the public input process, citizens were invited to use an online interactive map (or online survey if using a screen reader) to identify barriers to biking and walking, as well as existing and desired routes. Over 200 different users provided comments. In addition, city staff participated in number of community events and  neighborhood meetings to gather input. The final open house to review and provide comments on the draft plan was held on May 6, 2015 (5:00-7:00) at City Space.
