Countywide Non-Motorized Facilities Plan

 

| Special Project Main Page |

 

 

Kitsap County has expanded upon the work of the North Kitsap String of Pearls Plan adopted in 2011, to complete a draft Countywide Non-Motorized Facilities Plan. This Plan consolidates the work of multiple planning efforts including the Greenways Plan, Bicycle Plan and Parks and Open Space Plan to create a comprehensive direction for non-motorized planning. The document includes a:

  • Summary of previous planning efforts

  • Survey of existing facilities such as bike lanes and public trails

  • A clear classification structure for non-motorized facilities including potential design elements and funding sources.

  • Cost-effective locations for north/south and east/west connections between activity centers and other jurisdictions (cities and adjacent counties)

  • Prioritization process for considering public funding of non-motorized facility projects

  • Strategies for the long term maintenance of constructed facilities

The draft Plan is available for public review at the link below. To reduce the download size of the document most maps and illustrations are hot linked within the document for those who want that level of detail. Those individual hot links can also be accessed from the links below.
