Regional Bicycle Master Plan (DRAFT)

The City of Decatur along with the Decatur Urbanized Area Transportation Study (DUATS) are soliciting public comments from the Decatur Macon County region for the Draft Regional Bicycle Master Plan. If you would like to make any comments regarding this Plan, please email your comments to gcrowe@decaturil.gov or DUATS@decaturil.gov by Monday, July 12, 2021.   

The purpose of Bike Decatur is to develop a unified areawide plan to make the Decatur region a model Bicycle Friendly Community where bicycling is a safe, attractive, easy and convenient form or transportation and recreation for people of all ages and bicycling abilities. The Plan provides regional municipal staff with a set of tools to begin this endeavor. The bikeway costs, prioritization criteria, and list of funding sources in the Plan aims to help area staff, elected officials, and the community determine where to focus energy and resources within the tremendous range of recommended bicycle projects and programs. The Decatur region will not become a model bicycling community overnight, but this Plan is a key step toward achieving that goal.
