Creating equity

Trails support equitable community and revitalize growth when planned thoughtfully. Accessible and connected amenities benefit everyone. By keeping our parks and trails beautiful, accessible, safe, and functional, we ensure equitable access to nature and promote healthier lifestyles. Creating community connectivity within and between neighborhoods, schools, and community centers as well as increasing economic vitality are driving factors that show why we need to focus on this urban mobility development.

Quality of life

Active transportation increases the quality of life, general health, and well-being of those who use it or live nearby.  Benefits from these trails include access to jobs, potential pollution reduction, exercise opportunities, and access to nature.  It also supports the revitalization of nearby, connected communities and enables competitiveness with peer cities that are setting the bar.

Environmental considerations

Environmental impacts should always be considered as part of the project design. Sustainable design will consider beneficial impacts to water quality and general ecology. Example elements may include wetland plantings, pocket prairies, and permeable pavers. Planting selections will also vary based on plants native to the area and general environmental conditions.

Other environmental and sustainability factors to include during planning are:

  • Resiliency in Floodways and Floodplains
  • Erosion control
  • Sustainable/nature-based solutions
