Pathway Master Plan

The Pathway Master Plan provides guidelines for the development of the community's pathway network. This plan was first adopted by the City Council in 1997 and the most recent update was approved by City Council on October 11, 2021. The Pathway Master Plan is adopted by reference in the City's Comprehensive Plan and serves as a planning tool to assist the City on decisions regarding pathway issues.

Below are links to the plan and exhibits in the plan that show the City’s existing and proposed pathway connections.
