Bicycle Master Plan

Bike!Cornelius


On January 3, 2017, the Town of Cornelius Board of Commissioners adopted a Bicycle Master Plan, Bike!Cornelius, to address bicycle transportation - specifically bicycle facilities that are within the public street right of way. The recommendations from this plan compliment recommendations from the Town’s current Pedestrian Master Plan (adopted in June 2012) and the Comprehensive Parks and Greenways Master Plan (adopted June 15, 2015). Staff worked with the Bike Plan Steering Committee and Alta Planning & Design to develop this plan, which was funded by an NCDOT Bicycle Planning Grant.
