Bike/Walk Griffin has obtained permission from the City Manager to assist the city in working on a Complete Streets and Paths safety plan in conjunction with the Planning and Zoning, Public Works, and GIS departments.
One of the key strategies for advancing bike infrastructure is the implementation of Complete Streets mandates. Complete Streets ensure that all road users, including people walking, rolling, biking, and using transit, have safe and accessible ways to get where they want to go.
The CSP Plan is a pedestrian safety oriented plan that organizes and prioritizes pedestrian improvements including mixed use pathways like the proposed Griffin Greenway, sidewalk and pedestrian crossing improvements at intersections, trafffic calming and residental area pedestrian safety recommendations, and more. This is a long term plan that the city will use for the next 10-20 years to plan pedestrian improvements and make Griffin a safer, more walkable city for bike and pedestrian traffic.
The city is also receiving support from Three Rivers Regional Commission and Electric Cities Georgia, two organizations that both recieve federal funding to help develop these plans locally. This means that there is no large capital outlay from the city to create this plan and by volunteering to help write large portions, B/WG aims to minimize the time investment of city staff as much as possible so they can focus on their most important job- keeping the city running.
As the CSP plan progresses this page will be updated with proposed measures as well as information on how the community can give input on the plan and what they'd like to see implemented as the priority for the city.
