The City of Gahanna is excited to share that it recently was awarded a grant from ODOT to develop an Active Transportation Plan (ATP), which focuses on travelers who walk, bike, or use strollers, wheelchairs, mobility devices, scooters, skateboards or rollerblades. The ATP will help guide future improvements to connectivity in the City, and will be incorporated into regional plans that impact Ohio’s six Active Transportation Goals outlined in “Walk. Bike. Ohio”:
Network Connectivity – Promoting comfortable and continuous bicycle and pedestrian facilities that connect people to destinations.
Safety – Reducing bicyclist/pedestrian injuries and fatalities.
Equity – Ensuring the system accommodates users of all ages, abilities and incomes.
Network Utilization – Increasing walking and biking usage.
Livability – Improving the quality of life for all Ohioans.
Preservation – Ensuring critical existing infrastructure is in a state of good repair.
