The vision of the Franklin County Regional Pedestrian Plan is to provide a comprehensive resource that identifies tools and strategies for developing pedestrian-related infrastructure improvements in Franklin County. Franklin  County already has many great places to walk. By improving the existing infrastructure and bridging the gaps in the system, more people will be encouraged to walk. The Regional Pedestrian Plan goals are to:

  • Encourage and promote walking as a viable mode of transportation and as a recreational activity
  • Improve safety for pedestrians
  • Enhance pedestrian networks
  • Identify improvement projects to enhance connectivity for walking, meet compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Identify resources for maintaining and repairing existing pedestrian infrastructure, and provide towns with information on implementing pedestrian improvement projects
  • Promote a regional multimodal transportation system by facilitating pedestrian connections with other modes of transportation, including transit, biking, and driving
  • Identify infrastructure improvements that will improve accessibility to schools, senior centers, town centers, and other local walking destinations
