Walk & Bike

The Piedmont Environmental Council and the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission are working with communities in the Charlottesville and Albemarle urban area to envision and implement a comprehensive network of bicycle and pedestrian trails and greenways. As part of a robust engagement effort, we have developed a survey for residents to share their ideas for a thriving, connected community.

The 13-question survey asks residents about barriers to walking, running, and biking in the area. Respondents can describe their ideal vision for better transportation options and better recreation mobility. They can also offer specific suggestions for new or improved pedestrian and bicycle connections and examples from other places.

The survey builds on findings from earlier discussions and focus groups and digs deeper into some common issues that have emerged. For example, everyone wants connections that are safe, but safety may not mean the same thing to everyone. The findings will inform the regional bike/pedestrian plan and will be available for local partner organizations.

The survey ran from May 1, 2018 through Labor Day. We are currently analyzing the data and look forward to sharing what we learn.
