With a beautiful historic downtown, growing population, and newly developing areas, Plant City offers residents and visitors an abundance of activities. The MPO is working closely with the city to connect residents, businesses, and recreation areas with safe routes for pedestrians and cyclists.
The project team shared their initial analysis at a well-attended Open House on February 4th in Plant City. More than 30 participants described what Plant City means to them, where they like to go, and their top walk/bike priorities. The most common words to describe used Plant City were “friendly” and “community,” and top walk/bike priorities included better lighting, crosswalks, and separated trails.
When completed, the Walk | Bike Plant City 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
- a phasing and implementation plan, and a starter project
- recommendations for a strong, strategic funding plan for walking and bicycle facility expansion and improvement within the City
