Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

A master bicycle and pedestrian plan is a document that guides city staff and elected officials in deciding what streets are best for cycling and walking, how to make those streets safer, and what other policies and programs can be made to support improvements to the system. The goals, objectives, and recommended improvements in this plan are based on four key elements: field work, public input, technical analysis, and feedback from city staff and partner organizations such as River Valley Trails, Sustain Hudson, and St Croix Bike and Pedestrian Coalition. The City of Hudson’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan will serve as a bold first step into the future of walking and bicycling in the city.
