Is there a plan to make the city more accessible by walking/biking? We have a lot of sidewalks that end abruptly and bike lanes that go nowhere.

Our neighborhoods seem to be on their own little islands. Rec trails are great for families or walking the dog, but they don't allow people to get from A to B. I've seen the master plan documents, but it seems like CR is way behind the times when it comes to transportation and it seems to be getting worse as we expand without a comprehensive plan.

Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding biking and walking in Town. The Town strongly supports being able to bike or walk to destinations in Town and surrounding communities. In 2017, the Transportation Master Plan was updated and is available to review on the Town's website. It shows the master planned vision which is our goal, and includes adding bike lanes and multi-use sidepaths (wide sidewalks) to a number of streets throughout Town. Wide sidepaths are wide enough to accommodate people walking or biking, which is especially important for adults or children who do not feel comfortable biking in the roadway. As guided by this plan, the Town is also constantly adding new on-street bike lanes every year as part of the Pavement Maintenance Program, which will add a new striped bike lane where one is planned and where pavement width permits. In some instances, new sidewalks will also be constructed as part of the annual Pavement Maintenance Program (PMP) work.
