LITTLETON, CO -- Arapahoe County has been working on the development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan since May 2016 and has inventoried existing conditions, developed vision and goals and conducted extensive public outreach to inform the development of a draft bicycle and pedestrian network for the County. 

The final plan will result in a comprehensive system of on-street and trail facilities that safely connects neighborhoods and destinations and encourages walking and bicycling for travel and recreation. The plan covers both the incorporated and unincorporated portions of the County and is being developed in close coordination with all local municipalities. The final plan will serve as a guide for constructing bicycle and pedestrian network improvements over time. 

A public meeting will be held April 25 to present the comprehensive vision for on-street bicycle facilities, sidewalks and trails across the County. The draft network is based on public input from the project's online public commenting tool, an online survey, a Telephone Town Hall (June 2016), public meetings (December 2016) and outreach at special events. The draft bicycle and pedestrian network builds on existing plans from local municipalities to ensure continuity and to create a comprehensive vision for the County. 

We need to hear from you - the users of the bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the County - to ensure the draft bicycle and pedestrian network meets your needs and the community's vision. The project team will refine the network for incorporation into the final plan after the public meetings and create a phased implementation plan. After the draft plan is reviewed by the public, the final plan will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners for adoption. 

The public meetings will be held as an open house:
Aurora Municipal Center
Tuesday, April 25
5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
15151 E. Alameda Pkwy, Aurora, 80012
Aurora Room
