Fountain Hills Active Transportation Plan
About the Plan
The Town of Fountain Hills Active Transportation Plan (ATP) was the first active transportation plan developed by and for the Town. The Plan serves as the primary tool for deployment and integration of connected, safe, and comfortable facilities for bicyclists, pedestrians, and other nonmotorized modes within the Town. As the area continues to grow and new development comes to the Town, it is important to have a clear vision for a transportation network that meets the needs of all users.
An Active Transportation Plan reviews the non-vehicular transportation system in the Town and recommends improvements to the bicycle and pedestrian systems to improve safety, functionality and usability of the system.
Through the planning process, citizens were asked to help identify key gaps in the sidewalk and bike path systems and where the priorities should be for improvements.
The Plan reviewed safety issues to improve safety in these transportation systems and identify educational material for help people know how to use these modes safely.
The Town, with the assistance a consultant, J2 Engineering and Environmental Design, undertook this planning process. Opportunities for citizen involvement, review, and comments were provided throughout the Plan development and adoption process.
The Planning process began in August, 2020, with gathering of data, establishing base maps, and outlining the steps to complete the Plan. The Plan was completed in June, 2021.
