Introduction

The Wisconsin counties of Chippewa, Dunn, and Eau Claire are planning for the future of bicycle and pedestrian transportation. The county bicycle and pedestrian plans will focus on creating a greater array of transportation options while promoting connectivity, safety, health, economic and tourism opportunities within and beyond each county. The planning efforts build on existing bicycle and pedestrian plans, policies, and infrastructure of the state, counties, and local governments and will complete the following tasks:
 
-Create a separate bicycle and pedestrian plan for Chippewa, Dunn, and Eau Claire counties. Each plan will include a chapter discussing regional connections and routes.
-Identify a regional network of bikeways that connects communities and places of interest both within and between the three counties as well as St. Croix County.
-Examine pedestrian policies throughout the three counties and identify strategies to improve pedestrian conditions.
-Promote programs that educate the public about street safety and encourage people to walk and bike, including wayfinding infrastructure.
-Recommend policies to strengthen governments’ land use decisions, engineering approach, and enforcement actions on behalf of bicyclists and pedestrians.
- Make actionable and fiscally responsible recommendations that governments, agencies, and groups can implement immediately and long term.

The goal of this survey is to learn about your habits and options regarding bicycling and walking. No identifying information will be asked or made public. Your input is important to understanding public option and may be used for recommendations and improvement projections.

Visit our website to learn more and participate in our WikiMap, an online map in which you can show routes you currently walk or bike and routes you would like to walk or bike if they were more accessible; and place points at destinations you currently walk or bike to, at barriers that prevent walking and biking, and make general comments.
