The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC), which also staffs the Charlottesville-Albemarle Metropolitan Planning Organization (CA-MPO), has completed work on an update to the 2004 Jefferson Area Bike and Pedestrian Plan
. The Plan is the culmination of over two years of work and an extensive community engagement process, made possible by a grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation
and assistance from the Piedmont Environmental Council
. The Plan document is provided below, and was approved by the MPO Policy Board in February 2019 and by the Planning District Commission in March 2019.
This Plan seeks to encourage implementation by providing a focused list of regionally-significant bicycle and pedestrian projects that enhance regional connectivity and provide routes connecting the region’s important residential and economic centers. The urban areas in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County are emphasized. Recommendations are also provided for towns, development areas and rural areas in Albemarle, Greene, Louisa, Nelson and Fluvanna Counties.
