Welcome to the Park City Pedestrian Connectivity Plan
The City of Park City and its partners have undertaken the process of developing a pedestrian and bicycle plan to guide the development of its emerging system. The plan will develop over the coming months but it all begins with you! We need you to join the conversation about bicycle and pedestrian travel and access in Park City.
Why a pedestrian connectivity plan?
We are all pedestrians at some point of our day. Whether we are walking for recreation, transportation, or simply walking between your car and destination – you and your family experience Park City as a pedestrian. Park City has chosen to create a pedestrian connectivity plan because:
- your comfort and safety is important
- a well-connected city is good for local businesses
- a walkable and bikeable city is more welcoming to its residents
What is a pedestrian connectivity plan?
A planning and policy document to guide investment in pedestrian infrastructure and programs. The plan will include recommendations for off-street systems such as trails and greenways, in addition to on-street systems including sidewalks and bicycle routes. When complete, these routes will create a completed pedestrian and bicycle system that will seamlessly connect the people of Park City with the places they want to go. In addition to retrofitting existing streets, the plan will also illustrate how to apply a pedestrian-friendly design into new development areas.
Purpose of the project:
- To design a pedestrian connectivity system with local stakeholders
- To create a system that allows all residents access to safe and low-stress facilities that will meet their daily transportation needs
- The plan will:
- Develop a framework for a comprehensive and integrated network of pedestrian and bicycle facilities, corridors, and low-stress routes that will serve all neighborhoods and primary destinations including schools, commercial areas, and employment centers
- Identify and prioritize projects, programs, and policies focused on expanding participation by making walking and bicycling for daily needs safer, more comfortable, and more convenient
- Identify strategies that will guide the planning, funding, implementation, and maintenance of future projects with performance measures that allow the region to assess its progress
