The MRV Moves Active Transportation Plan is a planning project led by the Mad River Planning District and funded in partnership by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) Strong Communities, Better Connections Program, Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD), Towns of Fayston, Moretown, Warren, & Waitsfield, the Mad River Valley Rotary Club and the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Through a robust public involvement process, the MRV Moves Active Transportation Plan will articulate a unified, multi-town, watershed-wide vision for recreational trails and non-motorized transportation facilities, how they integrate with economic development, enhance visitor experiences, enhance residents’ quality of life, and improve transportation choices. The MRV is blessed with many wonderful non-motorized transportation facilities, including over 100 miles of public trails, as well as many local organizations and individuals working to promote and embrace active transportation. The MRV Moves Active Transportation Plan will seek to build upon and unify the decades of projects, initiatives, and organizations dedicated to active transportation in the Valley to provide a cohesive and collaborative vision for the future.
The MRV Moves Plan will implement this broadly held vision through the identification of specific goals and action steps needed to develop, maintain, and promote non-motorized transportation facilities in the MRV as community assets for residents and visitors. Moreover, implementation of the plan will be further enhanced through broad public input and involvement and by gaining wide public and decision-maker support.
