    Planning for, building, and maintaining great sidewalks and bikeways are imperative for a healthy, active, safe and vibrant community. I encourage citizens to participate in this process and to work with us to ensure Nashville’s sidewalks and bikeways are safe, useable and welcoming to people of all abilities.– Mayor Barry

    Nashville’s leaders have heard the demand to improve walking and biking and Mayor Megan Barry is committed to meeting the need for more sidewalks and bikeways. WalknBike will be the second update to Metro’s 2003 plan. The last update was 2008.

    Led by Metro Public Works, Metro project team members include Metro Planning Commission, Metro Public Health Department, MTA, MPO, Metro Nashville Police Department, Metro General Services, Metro Nashville Public Schools, and Metro Parks and Recreation. The project team is also composed of Alta Planning + Design, Civic Engineering and Information Technology, Hawkins Partners, Inc., MP&F Public Relations, and a steering committee made up of internal and external partners.

    The project includes a robust public engagement process, evaluation of peer and aspirational cities, updated inventory of Davidson County’s sidewalk and bikeways, modernized project prioritization, a comprehensive funding strategy, and new tools to provide easier access to information about implementation and program progress.

    This yearlong process depends on your input. Help Nashville prioritize strategic, equitable investment in sidewalks and bikeways. Stay connected for ways to engage and participate in the development of WalknBike!
