On August 9, 2022, the Bluff Town Council agreed to create the Safe Routes Committee, now named the “Active Transportation Advisory Committee” to explore planning grants, opportunities such as creating an active transportation plan, safe streets, and reconnecting communities. The committee serves as an advisory board to the Town Council and will formally make recommendations for Town Council vote upon.

Active Transportation Advisory Committee Bylaws

Mission: The Active Transportation Advisory Committee will lead a community driven process, creating and sustaining connectivity and active travel for safety, health and recreation.

What is an Active Transportation Plan? Active Transportation Plans, also known as Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plans, are guiding documents adopted by different government entities. These lay the foundation for what types of walking and bicycle infrastructure will be built, where it will be built, and how it will be built. If you want your community to be a better place to walk and ride, an Active Transportation Plan is the starting point.

Project Timeline: In late September, The Bluff Town Council voted to approve a partnership with Bike Utah to develop an Active Transportation Plan. Bike Utah will host community workshops in early Spring of 2023. Based on community input, we will use the completed Active Transportation Plan to apply for possible construction grants in the Fall of 2023.

Why Community Workshops? We need your input! This is your chance to design what gets built and where. Are you hoping to see more protected walkways? A more defined Main Street? A safe way for kids to get to school? More access to historical landmarks? Better accessibility? Cool signage? Shade structures? Benches? Artwork? Ideas for programming? Connections to the San Juan River, St. Christopher’s Mission, Sand Island? Let us know! Once the workshop dates are confirmed, we will let you know.
