Defiance County, Ohio is currently in the process of developing an Active Transportation Plan, which will outline the vision, goals, and strategies needed to support increased walking, bicycling, and other active modes of transportation in the area. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) defines Active Transportation as “human-powered transportation that engages people in healthy, physical activity while they travel from place to place.” In order to improve active transportation in Defiance County, we need your feedback. This survey will require about 5 minutes of your time. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will be utilized in the development of the Active Transportation Plan. If you have any questions about this survey or the Plan, please contact Maumee Valley Planning Organization at 419-784-3882 or planner3@mvpo.org.
