Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Planning

Trailnet works with communities to improve their livability and increase economic vibrancy by making them great places to walk and bike. The bicycle and pedestrian planning process guides communities through creating a phased, practical implementation plan for improving existing streets and incorporating walking and biking into daily life in the community. Community outreach throughout the plan helps officials, staff, and residents craft a plan that suits the community’s needs, resources, and vision.

Neighborhood Greenways and Play Streets

Neighborhood Greenways and Play Streets are a way to design residential streets as public spaces, emphasizing safety, walking, and biking in addition to driving. Neighborhood Greenways are streets with signage, traffic calming, and traffic diversion that serve as pleasant bicycling and walking corridors. Play Streets are short, residential streets that have street furniture and traffic calming to create spaces for community in addition to parking.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Infrastructure

Well-designed infrastructure for walking and biking allows people of all ages and abilities to enjoy active transportation. Separated infrastructure can reduce crash rates for people walking, biking, and driving, while making a neighborhood more desirable. Trailnet’s trained planning staff is dedicated to ensuring that our region has infrastructure that meets best practices for bicycling and walking for years to come, even as the standards evolve.

Community Outreach

Successful planning and community improvement requires engaged and informed residents that are ready to work together to achieve their goals. Trailnet works with communities including municipalities, counties, and neighborhood groups, to create open, participatory planning processes that allow residents, officials, and administrators to have genuine input in the plan.
