Help NOACA create a new bicycle and pedestrian plan
The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) last updated a plan for bicycle transportation in the region in 2013. This plan provided a vision for increasing the use of bicycles for transportation and commuting, while serving as a guide for developing bicycle infrastructure and included a priority bikeway system that showed where bikeway facilities should be built.
In late 2019, NOACA began the process of creating a new bicycle and pedestrian plan, called ACTIVATE. As with all of NOACA’s projects, the planning process will include significant opportunity for public involvement to best determine the plan’s objectives, needs, and goals.
The first phase of this public involvement includes a public survey. This survey should take around 10 minutes to complete. Respondents will remain anonymous. NOACA staff will use your feedback to ensure that ACTIVATE addresses the issues that affect you. We will be sharing the results of the survey in the plan.
Additional phases of the planning process, including public meetings, will be announced in early 2020For more information about the plan and to take the survey, visit here: https://www.noaca.org/regional-planning/transportation-planning/bicycle-pedestrian-planning/activate
