Fort Myers Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plan
Master Plans are designed to guide the future actions of a community by establishing long-range strategies focused on community development and sustainability. This year, the City of Fort Myers is updating the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan that was completed in 2007.
The 2007 plan was developed as a multi‐purpose plan intended to provide an inter‐connected network for non‐motorized transportation, wildlife, and recreation in a manner sensitive to the needs of:
- various user groups
- the natural and built environments
- constraints of management, maintenance, and funding capabilities.
The 2020 updated plan will provide improved mobility and further connectivity, leading to a more robust bicycle pedestrian network. The City of Fort Myers is dedicated to making bicycling and pedestrian safety a priority.
