Active Transportation Plan
The Office of Planning & Development, in cooperation with The EADS Group, Inc., Thomas R. Harley Architects, LLC., the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC), and the project Steering Committee, is developing the Indiana County Active Transportation Plan Update. This document will serve as an update to the County’s current bicycle/pedestrian plan titled More People Biking & Walking More Often: Pedestrian & Bicyclist Transportation Plan for Indiana County (adopted in 2012).
The primary goal of the proposed project is to plan for a more connected transportation system and identify opportunities that encourage biking/walking and transit use across the County.
Starting in September 2021, the project team engaged the community through four regional public input meetings held in Indiana, Blairsville, Saltsburg, and Marion Center. A web-based comment mapping application and community survey were developed (and also made available in printed form at public input meetings). Additionally, sixteen (16) Key Person Interviews were conducted during the planning process. For more details, please see SECTION 2: COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT of the Plan Update.
Indiana County wishes to thank the members of the Project Steering Committee who participated in preparing this Active Transportation Plan. Steering Committee members were actively involved throughout this planning process, participating in meetings, sharing their knowledge of local conditions, and providing quality input and guidance during the Plan Update preparation. The Steering Committee assisted with identifying Active Transportation Priorities and their input was used to help formulate this Active Transportation Plan Update. Thank you to the elected officials, health care professionals, service providers, local/regional agency representatives, trail users, residents, and other Key Persons who were interviewed during the planning process. The Interviews were an important method to engage different segments of the County.
This project was funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Health through the State Physical Activity and Nutrition Grant and Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
