Active Transportation Plan
City Council approved by resolution to contract with Toole Design Group on June 5th, 2017 to develop an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) in collaboration with the Mesilla Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization. The City Council presentation is here.The ATP is supported by both the Comprehensive Plan, Plan4LasCruces and the Healthy City Design Report. The City will work collaboratively with Toole Design Group and sub-consultant Molzen-Corbin & Associates to develop the plan which looks at bicycle, pedestrian, and all non-motorized modes of transportation throughout the City. The goal of the ATP is to create a livable and healthy community through active transportation. The yearlong engagement is a factfinding mission to look at current assets, barriers, and strategies to increased active transportation. Key deliverables include:
- Public Engagement
- Network Mapping
- Policy Recommendations
- Standards & Guidelines
- Implementation Plan - prioritization, project list, planning level estimates.
Stay tuned for more details on the Plan and how you can get involved.
