Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission Work Plan
The overarching goal of the BPAC is to be recognized as a Bike Friendly Community by The League of American Bicyclists, and as a Walk Friendly Community by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center within the next five years. The work elements detailed in the work plan will help the City achieve this dual goal.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Steering Committee Plan
The City of Staunton is in the process of creating a comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian plan to define a non-motorized transportation network city-wide. The plan would define a future bike and pedestrian network, give direction for constructing future facilities and help the City be more competitive when seeking future funding. Staunton has obtained funding through a grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation, Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment which is covering the cost of creating the plan. We have partnered with consultants from the firm of Rhodeside & Harwell who are assisting us in the planning process. A Bike/Ped Plan Steering Committee has been formed. The Steering Committee is a six-member committee; consisting of two members of Planning Commission, two members of the Recreation Advisory Commission, and two members from the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
The Final Bike and Pedestrian plan was adopted by Staunton City Council on Thursday, May 24, 2018. You may view the adopted plan below:
