Long-term planning for recreation and non-motorized projects requires a big-picture approach and a logical strategy for implementation. When a comprehensive framework is needed for bicycle, pedestrian, or trail projects, Alta can develop a master plan that offers the structure, vision, and guidance for successful implementation of projects, programs, and policies.
Our master plans are compelling and comprehensive, covering all planning aspects from inventory to implementation, including goals and objectives, public outreach, technical analysis and feasibility of improvements, project priority lists, support programs and policies, design guidelines, and maintenance and management tasks. We’ll conclude the plan with a clear action strategy to provide forward direction for implementation.
We’ve developed master plans for the entire range of non-motorized transportation and recreation, including the well-known Portland, Oregon Bicycle Master Plan, the Santa Barbara, California Pedestrian Master Plan and the Pasadena, Texas Bayou/Trails Master Plan.
