What is the Regional Active Transportation Plan?
This Plan is Northern Colorado’s opportunity to update our shared vision for improved bicycle and pedestrian transportation within and between communities. A lot has happened in our region since the adoption of the NFRMPO’s 2016 Non-Motorized Plan. With help from stakeholders across the region, the Active Transportation Plan will include the following:
- A consolidated summary of the existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, data, and design standards throughout the region
- Segment by segment analysis of each Regional Non-Motorized Corridor, including important local connections and critical gaps, and major barriers and opportunities for completion
- Best practices and policy recommendations for emerging micromobility solutions (electric bikes, scooters, and skateboards, etc.)
- Updated tools, analysis, and guidance supporting local and regional planning and funding efforts
What are we doing now?
We are early in the plan development process. NFRMPO staff is currently collecting data from planning partners about existing conditions, planned projects, and community visions. We will be ramping up our public outreach efforts soon. We hope to adopt the Active Transportation Plan in early 2021.
We want your input
