NON-MOTORIZED PLAN

​The plan is out! The Non-motorized Plan​ (NMP)​ was approved by the AMATS Policy Committee in November 2021. 

What is in the Plan? The Plan provides the vision for a non-motorized network within the AMATS Metropolitan Planning Area that when implemented, will help residents travel more safely and efficiently throughout the AMATS Planning area without the need of a motor vehicle in all seasons. The NMP merges bicycle, pedestrian, and shared use pathways planning efforts simultaneously.​

Want An Overview? Listen to AMATS staff review the draft plan in an open house that took place last March.
