Help Sunrise Develop a Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan
The City of Sunrise is currently at work on a Bicycle/Pedestrian Greenways and Trails Master Plan. The plan’s purpose is to guide the development, improvement and/or linkage of new and existing sidewalks, bike lanes, paths, greenways, trails and amenities.
When implemented, the plan will make walking and biking in our City more convenient, comfortable, fun and safe. Greenways and trails will also contribute to environmental conservation, recreation and fitness opportunities, tourism, education, and a sense of community and well-being throughout Sunrise.
Of course, we can’t create a comprehensive and successful plan without residents’ input. The City’s project consultant has developed an interactive online mapping tool that will help you share your thoughts. Please visit http://wikimapping.com/wikimap/Sunrise-Florida.html and join in the conversation!
For more information about the Master Plan project, contact the City of Sunrise Leisure Services Department: (954) 747-4600.
