YOUR INPUT MATTERS!

Help identify priority pathway and trail locations for the future of Yakima County.

The Yakima County Trails Plan 2019 is a community-wide effort to update the current Yakima County Trails Plan. The County Roads Department is asking residents to identify potential trail locations or projects (i.e. pathways, trails, sidewalks, bike lanes, shoulder widening) that have the potential to be completed in the next 5 to 10 years and correlates with transportation as much as recreation.

The goal is to identify projects that:

  • Have the potential to enhance bicycle and pedestrian facilities
  • Improve user safety
  • Promote connectivity with neighboring systems
  • Eligible for trail and muilti-modal facility funding in Yakima County

Please use the comment map below to help us identify priority locations and potential improvements.

Here is the type of feedback we are looking for (Comment period ends April 19th):

  • What facilities do you most readily use within unincorporated Yakima County? Are improvements needed?
  • Where are missing links or potential for improved connectivity between existing pathway and trail systems?
  • What areas within unincorporated Yakima County regarding bicycle and pedestrian facilities are you concerned about and why?

Please Note: Yakima County plans the trails and pathways system to remain eligible for trail and multi-modal facility construction funding. Most trail and pathway projects will be incorporated with transportation projects whenever possible/feasible. Yakima County may construct off-system trails and pathways depending on the location, then it is turned over to others (i.e. Yakima Greenway Foundation) for operation and maintenance.

OPEN HOUSE INFO

Please attend the Public Open House to meet the project team, comment on the existing trails plan and ask questions.
