2008 Bicycle Master Plan

In January 2007 the City of Urbana contracted with the Champaign County Regional Planning Commission to create a Bicycle Master Plan for the City. This study originated from the Urbana City Council goal to “Get Urbana Bicycling.”

The Plan was guided by a steering committee of community stakeholders including representatives from the Urbana Park District, Urbana School District, University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District and City staff. The Plan also involved an extensive public involvement component.
