Let's start by considering Flagstaff’s transportation system and the balance that currently exists between walking and biking, and driving. As we move forward, do you think that… More needs to be done to support walking and biking
There are many steps we can take to make Flagstaff a better place for walking and biking.

Please indicate how important each of the below actions are to improving walking and biking in Flagstaff.
[1 = not at all important. 5 = very important]

How important do you think the following factors should be in transportation planning and projects?

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan The other day, when I was nearly hit head on by a large SUV turning left in front of me when I had the green light to go straight through, I wanted to never ride a bike in this town again. I mean, you've done absolutely nothing to improve conditions for cyclists and pedestrians. Your sole goal appears to be keeping cars and smoke-belching diesel pickup trucks rolling through our neighborhoods. It's unpleasant to walk or bike in Flagstaff. And that's your fault. You create a bunch of plans and then do nothing. I've been waiting nearly 50 years for America to create some decent bicycle infrastructure. In the meantime, I've also lived in a few countries in Europe where they actually believe cyclists are not second class citizens, that it's ok to restrict motor vehicle access where necessary. A few years ago, I lived in Warsaw, Poland for a couple of years. In that short time, they created a serious amount of infrastructure. They didn't just talk about it; they did it. Paved bike paths were built on major streets throughout the city. A large bike-sharing program was implemented. They weren't afraid to do something.
I'd like to live in a city where our leaders aren't afraid to create bike infrastructure, one where I'm not afraid of getting run over by drivers who drive in the bike lanes, one where the bike lanes aren't useless during the snow season and beyond because you don't sweep the streets.
By the way, the same lousy conditions exist for pedestrians. I regularly nearly get run over crossing the street because drivers don't pay attention or think they're the only ones with rights. How about an aggressive enforcement of laws for drivers who don't yield to pedestrians or who talk or text on the phone or who drive too fast? A friend of mine was hit by a car recently just trying to cross Milton in a crosswalk with the walk signal.
Until you actually make this a bike-friendly community, you need to take down the bike-friendly community signs. Do you really think Milton is a bike-friendly street? That's where the sign was.
Signed,
Seriously Disappointed

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan 1. Motorized use should be prohibited on the FUTS. This means getting the electric bikes off the FUTS, permanently. The FUTS is and was developed as a non-motorized trail. Guess what, an electric bike is motorized and should not be on the FUTS. Resinde this incorrect allowance of motors on the FUTS immediately.
2. The Council and Mayor should request that the Coconiño National Forest immediately adopt alternating use days on all our public lands, with mountain bikers allowed on the North quadrant trails on even-numbered days (NO riding on South quadrant trails on even-numbered days), with the reverse for odd-numbered days. Across the entire forest. To protect hikers and equestrians from out of control and lacking in trail etiquette mountain bikers. Education is insufficient and has totally failed. To prevent injury, allow enjoyment of the trails by hikers (currently marginalized by bikers), and to enhance public safety and getting people out of their vehicles.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan Need pedestrian/bicyclists tunnels and bridges across Milton/Rte. 66 where crashes are highest. Easy access to the Downtown Connection Center for Coco Estates/Townsite/La Plaza Vieja neighborhoods where these pedestrians and bicyclists don't need to go out of their way to take the bus.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan I think all ways to increase walking and biking safety and to increase use of active modes of transportation are important.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan This could be the single-most important leg upon which our Carbon Neutrality Goals (CNG) stand in Flagstaff. Bicycle infrastructure should receive the greatest support throughout Flagstaff, Coco Cnty & ADOT. We cannot achieve CN without empowering ATMP. Bikes make both the individual and the community stronger, literary & figuratively, and their importance cannot be under-estimated. Cars do the opposite. How simple can an equation be? There is a very large pool of Flag residents (& visitors) who could be induced to bike or walk if we provide the infrastructure that encourages them and makes them feel safe AND welcome. While we've made a lot of progress, we have a long way to go. Keep CNG forefront in ALL decisions.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan So many older neighborhoods in Flagstaff lack basic pedestrian infrastructure. Resources should be spent on introducing sidewalks in residential areas where they are lacking. The expenditure of resources on expensive bridges and tunnels (which evidence suggests are not preferred by pedestrians and cyclists) should be of a lower priority than the development of a wider bike/ped network that fills in the missing on-street gaps in the downtown. The City has done an excellent job creating a recreational bike network, but now comes the hard work of creating a low-stress bike network that increases bike mode shares for interested but concerned bike commuters. These facilities must be protected and more than just green paint on the road if we're to believe the City is serious about reducing vehicle trips.
