Connecting People and Communities
Winnebago County has developed a bicycle and pedestrian plan to guide biking and walking improvements in the rural areas of the County. The Plan connects to the existing Fox Valley Urbanized Area Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan and other local area plans. Our goal is to create better connections between communities to improve transportation options, recreational opportunities and health and safety of our residents. The Plan was accepted by the Winnebago County Board of Supervisors in February 2017. Implementation of the Plan will be overseen by a Bike/Ped Stakeholder Team and County staff.
Our Plan consultants, Toole Design Group and East Central WI Regional Planning Commission, have used all of the feedback from our residents and from the local experts on our steering committtee to create The Connecting People and Communities: Winnebago County Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. The full Plan, executive summary, maps and appendix can be downloaded below. A map of recommended biking/walking routes is also available online: http://arcg.is/2foJFRO
Rural Intersection Audits and Counts
During the summer of 2015 baseline data on conditions of county roads and intersections was collected by two student internts. People walking and bicycling during the time of the audits were also counted. There are individual audit summaries for each of the 29 audits performed in June and July throughout Winnebago County. Data in this report is included in The Plan and can be used to monitor progress made during Plan implementation.
