The Florida-Alabama Transportation Planning Organization is updating the Pedestrian/Bicycle Master Plan. As part of the planning process, Florida-Alabama TPO staffers have opened a call for projects.

You can submit a project form — located at http://www.wfrpc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Call-for-Projects-Form-FINAL.pdf — for each pedestrian/bicycle facility project you would like to see implemented in your community. Email the completed forms to David Wood, david.wood@wfrpc.org.

If a project was included in the 2010 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, you can re-submit it. The deadline to submit projects is close of business, Friday, Jan. 19.

Florida-Alabama TPO staff will rank eligible projects. Preliminary scores will then be presented to the Pedestrian Bicycle Advocacy Working Group for review of rankings and feedback. Final rankings will be included in the updated Florida-Alabama TPO Pedestrian/Bicycle Master Plan.

In February 2017, the TPO initiated an effort to incorporate facility improvements and Complete Streets policies into an updated Pedestrian/Bicycle Master Plan. The ultimate goal is to develop a non-motorized system that addresses the needs of all users and encourages the use of alternative modes of transportation.
