Draft Pathways Masterplan (2007)

Goals of Jackson Hole Community Pathways

Improve facilities: Systematically complete the Pathways Improvement Program list of on-road and off-road improvements for bicycling, walking, horseback riding, and nordic skiing.

Increase Use: Double the percentage of transportation trips made by bicycling, walking and other non-motorized modes by 2015.

Enhance Safety: Decrease the number of bicycle and pedestrian accidents and multi-user trail conflicts by 10%.

Broad Program Objectives

Meet needs of all levels of bicyclists: Create a comprehensive network of on-road and off-road facilities that connects neighborhoods and provides safe, convenient access to schools, employment centers, and other destinations, and that are integrated with the roadway and transit systems.

Meet needs of pedestrians, including persons with disabilities: Make all streets and intersections "pedestrian-friendly" and accessible.

Meet needs of equestrians: Create a network of trails and trail access points that connects horse friendly areas of the county with public lands and provides safe, convenient access to major equestrian destinations.

Meet needs of Nordic skiers: Create a network of winter nordic trails and trail access points that provides close to home nordic skiing opportunities on public and private lands.

Increase safety through promoting education and enforcement: Play a constructive role in facilitating the creation of education programs by providing teacher training, curriculum materials, and other support services. Play a constructive role in facilitating enforcement programs with law enforcement officials, the public, and decision makers.

Encourage and Promote bicycling and walking: Shift 10% of transportation trips to bicycle and walking modes by 2015; conduct a promotion campaign for bicycling and walking transportation trips.
