Bicycle & Pedestrian Network Master Plan

Background


In the spring of 2016, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council agreed to assist the Town of Middleton in the creation of a community-wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Network Master Plan, with the goal of encouraging implementation of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations and to create a network of on-road and off-road facilities for safe, non-automotive travel. While the focus will be on short-term, low-cost solutions, the plan will also look for longer-term opportunities, such as off-road trails and separated bicycle lanes. The Plan will also include elements identifying accommodations that aim to improve the pedestrian experience at a limited number of locations.

This plan was funded entirely through $10,000 from MAPC and $10,000 from the Massachusetts Community Compact program.

Online Interactive Wikimap & Survey


This interactive wikimap will allow participants to provide input to the Town about walking and bicycling routes and concerns, by adding comments, points, lines, and photos. Participants may enter the site anonymously, if they wish. Results of the mapping tool will be used to inform project recommendations.
