The City of Grand Junction has initiated an effort to create the City’s first Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan and update the existing Transportation Engineering Design Standards (TEDS). The deadline for applications was August 5 and City Council will make the final selection of 10-15 interested individuals. 

Members of the Steering Committee will be responsible for attending a series of six meetings throughout the duration of the project (September 2022 – April 2023). Meetings will be held in person and/or online during the day or evenings. The dates and times of meetings will be provided to applicants who are selected and appointed to the committee by City Council. 

Selected committee members will serve as a critical sounding board for the overall plan direction, and will review project goals and deadlines, research ideas, and promote community involvement. Most importantly, the steering committee will help ensure the final plan is inclusive, focuses on equitable distribution of resources, and reflects perspectives from individuals with a wide variety of experience and interest.

The Master Plan will identify, prioritize, and guide the efforts to fund active transportation improvements within the city. This Master Plan will also identify new policies, programming, and design standards to support safe and accessible biking, walking, and other non-motorized or low-powered modes of transportation (e.g. those using a mobility aid) within the community.
