Let's Move Frederick: A Comprehensive Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan for the City of Frederick
The City is now embarking on a comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian planning effort called Let’s Move Frederick!
The city’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan laid out three important policy aims: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to reduce driving in the city, and to reduce traffic. To do so, the Comprehensive Plan called for the city to implement its first comprehensive plan focusing on its pedestrian infrastructure and its bicycling infrastructure. The Plan also called for the city to elevate walking and bicycling to be as safe, useful, and comfortable as driving.
Let’s Move Frederick will:
Explore the current status of walking and bicycling in Frederick
Detail the current research regarding what makes a city bikeable and walkable
Create a citywide walking network that will prioritize the missing sidewalk links throughout the city.
Create a citywide bicycling network prioritizing connectivity, comfort, and equity.
Determine these networks’ maintenance needs to ensure they will be safe and usable at all times of the year
Create programs to encourage people to walk and bicycle
Describe the financing landscape to create and operate these networks and programs
We need your feedback!
We can’t make this plan without you, the residents that call Frederick home. We want to know what you need and want from our transportation network. How can Frederick become a better place? What’s your vision for how Frederick residents get around in 10 years? 20 years?
