The Athens-Clarke County Unified Government is in the process of developing a bike/pedestrian master plan known as the Athens In Motion Plan. The Athens In Motion Plan will identify a clear strategy for near and long-term projects that will result in a safe, connected, and equitable bike and pedestrian network for Athens-Clarke County.
Updated 3.6.2018: The next steps for the Athens in Motion Plan include continued refinement of the draft network to improve safety and connectivity along with a future opportunity for public comments on the proposed network. All opportunities and events for public comment will be advertised through the Athens-Clarke County website.
Updated 1.23.18: A PDF of the presentation from the January 8, 2018 Citizens Advisory Meetings is now online.
Updated 1.2.18: A heatmap showing density of WikiMap comments is now available in PDF format (45 mb).*
The heatmaps illustrate line and point data received from public WikiMap comments with an additional 1/8-mile buffer. The line and point inputs were as follows:
Difficult route for biking
Difficult route for walking
Route I bike
Route I walk
Barrier to biking
Barrier to walking
*PDF may load slowly due to large document size.
Updated 8.18.17: The result of the bicyclist / pedestrian demand analysis is a heat map which shows areas of current or potential demand for biking and walking based on proximity to items such as parks, trails/greenways, schools, colleges/universities, commercial centers, and other community amenities. This demand analysis is one of the many layers that will be used to inform the final plan.
