Input generated through this map will help the project team better understand community priorities, learn about needs of specific projects, and identify any new potential projects to include in the plan.

There are walking and biking improvements in City plans, but I want to see things get done someday! How can I help move things along?

You can explore the Southwest In Motion online mapping tool to help planned walking and biking projects get closer to shovel-ready, making it easier to find funding and opportunities to get them built over time.

How will you determine what gets built?

Since there are limited funds and a lot of need in Southwest, the project team needs your help to determine what to make happen first.
