Quarryville Seeks Comments on ‘Active Transportation Plan’ | Local News
Borough of Quarryville officials are asking for the public’s opinion in order to develop an “active transportation plan”.
Forms of active transportation are those that require human energy, such as walking, running, and cycling.
The effort to form such a plan aims to identify infrastructure improvements for active means of getting around and to identify sources of funding and other strategies to achieve them.
The development of the active transportation plan itself is funded by grants from PA WalkWorks and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. PA WalkWorks is an initiative of Downtown Pennsylvania and the State Department of Health.
The initiative comes from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, which in 2019 developed a strategy and rubric for local governments and regional planning organizations to use in future planning.
Akron also won a grant to develop an active transportation plan.
The Akron planning commission was scheduled to discuss the borough’s investigation and other non-vehicular transportation issues at a meeting last night.
