Local Bike/Ped Plans & Policies

Policy drives change, and in SC that includes a complete streets resolution, policy, or ordinance; Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan; internal order or directive; transportation referendum, design manual rewrite, comprehensive plan, land use and zoning changes.  These policies are implemented when funding is applied.

Master Plans

Pedestrian and/or Bike Master Plans propose bicycle and/or pedestrian infrastructure.  Often created at the city, county, or regional level, the new SCDOT Departmental Directive for Complete Streets will implement these plans with state money if they are incorporated into regionally developed plans that become part of the Long Range Transportation Plans of the MPO's or COG's.  MPO's are Metropolitan Planning Organizations for urban areas, and COG's are Councils of Government for rural areas.

A good Master Plan will include new street and intersection designs, land use relationships, corridor plans, prioritization criteria, a resulting priority list of corridors & intersections, funding plans, road diets, and education programs.  Ideally, project development includes good public engagement and input.
