Active Transportation Planning
Active Transportation Planning is planning, designing, constructing and maintaining a safe, comfortable, and efficient roadway network for users of all ages and abilities including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, motorists, commercial and emergency vehicles. Active Transportation Planning helps plan a network that provides connectivity, improves safety, supports consistent project implementation, and increases awareness. The City of Lorain, in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), Lorain County Public Health, Lorain City Schools (LCS), Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) and staff members from other non-profits, agencies and organizations as well as local bicycle advocates and other community advocates, has participated as a partner in this effort and is continuing to plan for a more inclusive Lorain.
