The Citywide Trails Master Plan was identified in the Parks Master Plan as a critical implementation item. This plan will guide the equitable and environmentally responsible development, enhancement and construction of existing and new trails throughout the City. The Master Plan will also guide its close interaction and synergy with open space planning and conservation, in compliance with the City’s Multiple Species Conservation Program. In addition to trails within the City’s open space, the Trails Master Plan will also include urban pathways and other community connections.

Strategic Plan Priority Areas of Focus

This initiative focuses on the following priority areas of the Strategic Plan:

Protect & Enrich Every Neighborhood

Trails in both open spaces and developed urban areas provide opportunities for healthy enjoyment and transportation, as well as connections within and between all communities.

Champion Sustainability

Ensuring the protection of sensitive open space areas, while identifying compatible walking, rolling and biking connections not only protects our plants and animals, but also provides more healthy and active ways to move around our city.
