In partnership with the Genesee Transportation Council, the county is developing a plan to include access beyond automobile traffic when planning for infrastructure improvement projects
Imagine a future in Monroe County where it is as convenient to walk, bike or use a mobility device as it is to drive a car. Monroe County Executive Adam Bello is inviting the community to help realize that future by participating in developing the county’s first Active Transportation Plan.
“Your voice matters. I invite everyone in our community to participate and help us shape an Active Transportation Plan that reflects the needs of our neighborhoods and makes Monroe County’s infrastructure better, safer and more accessible for everyone,” said County Executive Bello. “This plan will help shape our infrastructure needs when we are planning roads, bridges and other transportation improvement projects.”
The Monroe County Department of Planning is working in partnership with the Genesee Transportation Council to develop a plan that outlines goals and strategies to make self-propelled human-powered travel such as bicycling, rolling (wheelchair, scooter, stroller), hiking and running safer and more convenient for transportation and recreational purposes.
Residents across the county will have many opportunities to get involved in the planning process. A public workshop will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. June 29 at Highland Park Olmstead Lodge, 171 Reservoir Ave. Additionally, a pop-up event to receive public input will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 18 at the Rochester Public Market, 280 North Union Street.
Further details, including other upcoming events and how to participate in online engagements, can be found on the CATP project website monroecounty.gov/planning-catp.
