Park City Trails Master Plan Update and Walkable/Bikeable Neighborhood Study
Landmark Design, along with a transportation planning sub-consultant, completed a unique plan for Park City to analyze the “walkability” and “bikeability” of the city and provide planning and design suggestions that improve walking and biking within the urban environment. The public played a major role in defining these issues through a telephone survey; a series of school, neighborhood, community, and public forum meetings; with input from City Staff, a Steering Committee and the Share the Road Committee.
Through an intensive public involvement process and detailed analysis of specific trails projects, the planning team developed a list of projects, alternatives, costs, and impacts for residents and city staff to use as a funding priority list. In fact, this project was the genesis of a $15 million dollar trails and pedestrian facilities bond that was passed by Park City voters last November. The final product of this project was a prioritized list of projects and improvements that Park City would roll into their capital improvements program and budgeting process. The result is a comprehensive system of improvement projects that are “doable” with resources that are currently available, without major shifts in public funding, and which make the pedestrian environment safer and easier to navigate. The plan was adopted by the Park City Council in Spring 2007.
