DRAFT Plant City Walk-Bike Master Plan

With a beautiful historic downtown, growing population, and newly developing areas; Plant City offers residents and visitors an abundance of activities.  The goal of this project is to develop a bicycle and pedestrian network that connects residents, businesses, and recreation areas with safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists.  The project team will look at the feasibility of trails, on-street bike facilities, and sidewalks; and provide a plan of how Plant City can improve access for all residents.

The final report will:

  • Provide a blueprint for a comprehensive system in Plant City that makes walking and bicycling for all purposes and by all users accessible, safe, and desirable
  • Provide a phasing and implementation plan, and a starter project
  • Provide recommendations for a strong, strategic funding plan for walking and bicycle facility expansion and improvement within the City

An open house was held on Thursday, February 2, 2017 at Bruton Memorial Library.  Approximately 40 people attended and provided valuable feedback on the proposals.  Additional materials will be posted as they are available.
