Fairfax County is updating and combining the Bicycle Master Plan and the Countywide Trails Plan into the ActiveFairfax Transportation Plan. Active transportation means self-propelled, mostly human-powered travel including walking, biking, rolling (scooter, wheelchair, stroller), hiking, running, and riding for transportation and recreational purposes. The plan will establish a vision and a roadmap for implementation of safe, convenient, and enjoyable streets and trails in Fairfax County.
Guiding the Future: Developing a Vision and Goals for Active Transportation in Fairfax County
The Active Transportation Plan introduces a framework for advancing active transportation that includes an overarching vision statement, goals, objectives that are rooted in the public feedback received in Spring 2021, previous planning efforts and initiatives, and best practices. The vision statement will be used as a guide to help Fairfax County make decisions that align with its philosophy and declared set of goals. Goals reflect the desired result that Fairfax County and its partners envision, plan, and commit to achieve.
