The Euclid Citywide Active Transportation Plan envisions safe, comfortable, and connected networks that support multi-modal trips and human-powered mobility options throughout the community.
The goal of the Plan is to identify opportunities for safer and stronger pedestrian and bicycle connections between residents, job hubs, essential business services, entertainment and recreational amenities, local and regional assets, and community facilities both within the City of Euclid and in neighboring communities.
The Euclid Active Transportation Plan is intended to create a city-wide, action-based, and implementation-ready plan that will facilitate infrastructure improvements for those who do not have access to, do not desire to, or cannot afford to have a personal motor vehicle as their primary mode of transportation. This Plan builds off numerous existing local and regional planning efforts to help the City of Euclid achieve its active transportation goals.
The planning process began in December 2022, when the City of Euclid was awarded professional planning services through a competitive grant process from the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission. The Euclid Active Transportation Plan consists of five-phases that will culminate in a complete Active Transportation Plan document.
This initial phase involves collecting data on current bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and demographic data, as well as reviewing previous local and regional planning efforts, and identifying best practices around the county, state, region, and nation. This is used as a baseline for the City of Euclid and for the following phases of this Plan.
Based on input from residents, businesses, community groups, and leaders, County Planning will facilitate the articulation of a vision for how the City of Euclid would like to improve and grow active transportation facilities in the future.
Based on feedback from the community and current best practices, County Planning will outline targeted action steps and citywide recommendations to achieve the community’s desired future of an active transportation network as outlined in the Vision.
In this phase, County Planning will build upon the Vision and recommendations from previous phases to outline actionable strategies, partners, responsibilities, and priorities for undertaking improvements to active transportation connections throughout the City of Euclid and beyond.
Final Active Transportation Plan Document
In this final phase, County Planning will combine all the previous phases into a completed Active Transportation Plan document.
