The Case for a Walkable Bikeable Region:
learn why investments in walking and biking are key to our region’s success.

December 15, 2011: Workshop on How to Tap Underutilized Funding

Follow the links below to learn more about CRCOG Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning

Bicycle/Pedestrian Committee:  CRCOG is responsible for bicycle and pedestrian planning for the region.  This planning is overseen by the Bicycle/Pedestrian Committee, a subcommittee of the CRCOG Transportation Committee.  The Committee meets on a quarterly basis.

Pedestrian Plan/Bicycle Plan:  As part of its overall transportation planning responsibilities, CRCOG is responsible for developing the region’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan.  A 2015 Update Addendum - a minor update to the 2008 Plan - was endorsed by the CRCOG Bike Ped Committee on June 9th, 2015 and adopted by the CRCOG Transportation Committee and Policy Board on June 22, 2015. A Multi-Use Path Map is also a part of this minor 2015 update. Please direct questions on the plan or its recent addendum to Emily Hultquist,

Active Transportation Initiative:  The Active Transportation Initiative seeks to move the Pedestrian/Bicycle Plan forward to implementation, to position the region to take advantage of evolving funding sources, and to raise the awareness of biking and walking as important modes of transportation.

In 2014 CRCOG developed its first Active Transportation Audit to gather information and rate key intersections for bicycling and walking in the region.  An audit is available for roadway intersections and for trails.  The audits are easy to complete and are designed for communities to use on their own as well as for use in the regional bike ped count program.

The Four “E’’s”:  Studies and experience in other regions have demonstrated that, in order to be successful, a Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan must include strategies in the four “E’s”, Engineering, Education, Encouragement, and Enforcement.  Follow the links below to find resources and to learn about regional progress in each of these areas.
