MCDOT is seeking public input for its Active Transportation Plan (ATP). An interactive website is now available on the MCDOT website allowing residents to identify areas where improvements could be made to increase accessibility for pedestrians, cyclists and users of other non-motorized modes of transportation.
“The Active Transportation Plan will give MCDOT the information it needs to provide connections to pedestrians and others who may not rely on cars to travel, work or conduct business in Maricopa County,” said MCDOT Director Jennifer Toth. “Public input is a critical component of making sure the Plan identifies the needs of Maricopa County.”
A series of public meetings will be held in late April and early May. Dates and locations will be posted to the Active Transportation Page on the MCDOT website.
The Active Transportation Plan will prioritize the needs of pedestrians,cyclists, and individuals with disabilities who access and use county roadways and connect to adjacent facilities. In addition, the plan will address potential partnerships, explore funding options and recommend potential policies to enhance active transportation in Maricopa County.
The ATP is a key element of MCDOT’s Transportation System Plan (TSP), which identifies and plans for future transportation needs in Maricopa County.
