Non-Motorized Facilities Community Advisory Committee

​PURPOSE

The Non-Motorized Facilities Community Advisory Committee (NMFC) is established to advise the Board of County Commissioners and staff on matters related to non-motorized transportation and shall have the opportunity to contribute to the County's planning processes related to non-motorized transportation. 

The County adopted a Non-Motorized Facility Plan in 2013 to establish goals and policies for providing non-motorized facilities that provide connections between and within communities and supports recreational and tourism opportunities.

With facilities designed primarily for pedestrians and bicyclists (paved shoulders, bike lanes, and shared-use paths and sidewalks), non-motorized transportation is a critical element of an integrated transportation system and increases mobility choices, relieves traffic congestion and improves the quality of life.

The Non-Motorized Facilities Plan strives to:

• Provide a region-wide vision for a connected system of off-road shared use paths and on-road
facilities (paved shoulders/bike lanes/shared lanes) and a process to prioritize such routes.
• Ensure facilities address the needs of multiple user groups (commuters, recreational bicyclists,
pedestrians, equestrian, tourism, paddlers, etc.)
• Encourage dialogue and more coordinated planning among neighboring counties, cities and local
entities; and
• Enhance partnerships and increase communication among cities, and local agencies regarding the
implementation and operation (construction, maintenance, marketing, etc.) of non-motorized
facilities.
