BICYCLE INITIATIVES

In recognition of the need to facilitate short trips within Palmetto Bay via walking or bicycling rather than driving; achieving a higher percentage of non-motorized trips; the Palmetto Bay Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was developed in August of 2009. As a community becomes more dense, the construction of bicycle and pedestrian facilities as an alternative to automobile travel becomes more important to maintain mobility within the community. Public awareness and involvement continues to be a key component in meeting our vision, goals and objectives; and we are most appreciative to those whom have assisted and continue to be involved. Using existing generators such as parks, schools and commercial centers; right-of-ways and greenways; sidewalks as grids and connectivity to existing bikeways where possible; the Village of Palmetto Bay strives toward meeting short term, mid-term and long term goals toward development of an extensive bicycle and pedestrian network.
