2022 Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan Updates

Project Overview: ES557

Now through Summer 2023, City of Bellingham will update the 2012 Pedestrian Master Plan and the 2014 Bicycle Master Plan. These mode-specific plans establish citywide pedestrian and bicycle networks, identify and recommend improved needs, apply community-identified priorities, and develop a fiscally-constrained list of projects for the future. Extensive public input will inform the plan updates. 

These projects are funded by the Bellingham Transportation Fund, state and federal grants, and local partnerships.

Opportunities to Get Involved

In Fall 2022 the second round of public engagement for the Pedestrian Master Plan Update will happen during the Plan Development phase and the first round of public engagement for the Bicycle Master Plan Update will begin for the Bicycle Discovery Phase. You can comment, ask questions, take the survey and add ideas to the webmap pertaining to the Bicycle Master Plan Update now through the end of the Bicycle Discovery Phase on the Engage Bellingham webpage.
