Juneau Non-Motorized Transportation Plan Update

Hey Walkers and Bikers!

The Non-Motorized Transportation Plan is all about you!


The current plan was completed in 1997 and needs updating to reflect today’s conditions and priorities for biking and pedestrian routes. The purpose of this plan is to provide safe and efficient links between community destinations and to encourage the community to choose active forms of transportation.

What you can do....

Come to a public meeting in your neighborhood!

Five public meetings will be held between December 1st and December 15th, 2008. Each meeting will focus on a specific Juneau sub-area as well as area-wide commuting routes. At each meeting, we will discuss current non-motorized routes, review recommendations from existing plans, and ask residents about walking and biking destinations, missing links, safety concerns and other obstacles along the routes.
