PROJECT BACKGROUND

The City of Jacksonville hired Toole Design Group to assist with the development of a Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan in response to Jacksonville's designation as a Focus City.  Mr. Andy Clarke, former President of the League of American Bicyclists and Director of Strategy for Toole Design Group, was the Consultant Project Manager. 

The plan established a baseline of existing conditions, identified needs, established a recommended network, and helped to prioritize strategies that will increase the number and frequency of people walking and bicycling while improving safety within the City of Jacksonville. 

PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT

Through several rounds of public meetings, the team received important input from a variety of stakeholders on the goals, challenges, opportunities, and priorities related to biking and walking in the City of Jacksonville.  Overall, we learned that the public values:

Safety- provide a safer, more comfortable environment for walking and biking on our city streets.
Connectivity-create a seamless network of sidewalks and bike lanes to allow for more continuous travel.
Awareness- promote concern, awareness and respect between drivers and pedestrians through education and encouragement.
Participation- provide a street network that is conducive to many more people walking and biking in Jacksonville.

The following are summaries of the presentation and public comments from the two rounds of meetings: There were also four Steering Committee meetings, which were open to the public. The following are summaries of each:
