During the months of June and July, our City team spoke at over 40 events, meetings, and locations across the city. Our survey was translated into 5 languages and we heard from residents aged 8 to 80. Over 1,000 community members shared their input by completing our survey or sharing comments on existing and future active transportation needs in Dayton. In the coming month, we will share survey results and provide updates on next steps in our planning process.
What is Active Transportation?
Active transportation is human-powered transportation that engages people in healthy physical activity while they travel from place to place. People walking, bicycling, using strollers, wheelchairs/mobility devices, skateboarding and rollerblading are engaged in active transportation.
This plan establishes strategies, plans and processes to ensure that people of all ages and abilities living, working, and visiting Dayton have access to affordable, safe and convenient methods of transportation. The plan will expand the existing bicycle and pedestrian networks, incorporate micro-mobility infrastructure and provide a clear and actionable implementation strategy.

Our initial listening phase may be complete, but you can stay engaged in our process by signing up for project updates. We’ll let you know when additional public events are scheduled and will share the draft plan when it is available for review and comments.
