Active Transportation Plan

The Village of Yellow Springs Active Transportation Plan is an effort led by the Village’s Active Transportation (ATP) Committee. The Plan builds on existing plans to develop recommendations that guide the construction of active transportation facilities, like sidewalks and trails, as well as to develop new programs and policies that support active transportation.

The Plan 
also provides the Village with an actionable road map for improving community mobility, with a focus on health and sustainable travel modes. The components – policy, program, and capital project recommendations – work in tandem to create a more complete and equitable transportation system for all users.
