After the June 5, 2019 Village of Estero Council Meeting, a workshop was held on the proposed Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan
The Village’s consultants for this project reviewed how they had obtained an extensive amount of public input through public meetings, an online mapping tool, and focus group workshops. They stated they had 1,000 online comments, with the majority of comments geared to biking vs walking opportunities. Their focus was on connectivity and safety while encouraging mobility.
They stated that while the Sun Trail is probably 20 years in the future, much needs to be done before that project can happen. They identified 73 miles of walkways and bikeways in the Village. (Presentation [PDF])
