The purpose of the plan is to look at sidewalks strategically and to have a road map for connecting sidewalks throughout the City, thereby fulfilling the City’s strategic goals to be safe and have vibrant neighborhoods. This makes the City more walkable, keeps students off busy roads allowing them to walk safely to schools, and gives residents an alternative to driving.

The City currently has more than 400 miles of sidewalk within the boundaries of the city. More than 200 miles are city owned and maintained, while the remaining sidewalks are on either private property (gated communities), on County Roads or on State Roads. Since the initial creation of the City’s sidewalk program in 2006, the City has installed more than 40 miles of sidewalks at a cost in excess of $17,000,000. The City has been highly successful in leveraging city funds with outside sources and continues to seek various grant opportunities.

The City aspires to install as much sidewalk as possible. The plan includes 1/2 cent sales tax funding, committed grant funding and city funds.

It is important to note that the City also increases the sidewalk inventory through other means such as roadway improvement projects. An example is the Crosstown Parkway project that will add an additional two miles of sidewalks

Background

During the 1960s, the developers of the City, General Development Corporation, only provided sidewalks within limited parts of the City, such as the Sandpiper/Club Med area. As the population increased, new wider roadways were needed that included sidewalks. As areas were annexed into the City, sidewalks became an essential element of the new developments.

Goal

Pedestrian Crossing Sign

The goal of the sidewalk program is to progressively expand the sidewalk network to include sidewalks on major roadways with an emphasis on areas within a two-mile radius of schools and to provide sidewalks with direct connections between the major roadways. The purpose of this goal is to establish a network of connecting sidewalk rather than numerous non-connecting segments.
