The Master Plan is a Community Based Implementation Focused Transportation Plan that examines the facility needs for pedestrians, bicycles, and transit. The plan establishes goals and objectives for each mode of transportation. It discusses Safe Routes to School, Carpooling and Park & Rides, and other modes of transportation. The scope of the plan is the City of Durango Comprehensive Planning Area. The goal of the plan is to establish a connected functional network of bicycle lanes/routes throughout the city, identify on and off street trail and transit connections, and to develop a new set of user friendly maps. The end result will be a list of projects, policy recommendations for bike lanes, bike parking, transit enhancements, ride-sharing, suggested locations for park and rides, and much more.
