The City of Newark is excited about development of its first Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP). The focus of this PBMP will be to evaluate existing pedestrian and bicycle conditions and create a prioritized list of projects. These projects will provide access to the San Francisco Bay waterfront, parks, trails, and open space areas for recreational purposes. However, these facilities will also serve the ever expanding numbers of people walking and cycling, choosing non-motorized transportation for their own health and the environment. As such, this Plan will examine where gaps in the pedestrian and bicycling networks could be filled, and where existing facilities could be upgraded or repaired to be made accessible and inviting to walkers and cyclists of varying levels of experience and abilities.
