Walk & Bike
PEC Logo

Bike and pedestrian connectivity are a great way to enhance quality of life and create healthy, thriving urban communities. The gains to a community are numerous and can include expanded transportation options, greater economic development opportunities, and improved health and wellness.

Locally, the Charlottesville and Albemarle urban area has an opportunity to create a world-class bike and pedestrian greenway system that connects neighborhoods, retail areas, and places of work with iconic resources such as Monticello, the Downtown Mall, UVA Grounds, the Rivanna River, and Biscuit Run State Park.

Through funding from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, PEC is working in partnership with the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission on a community engagement initiative to build support for implementation of a comprehensive greenway system. Specifically, we will be engaging the community to build a shared vision for greenways among the public sector, nonprofit organizations, and business and civic actors.
