Springdale Connectivity Network Vision Plan

City Bike Plan

The City of Springdale has been engaged with various types of transportation from the early 1990's.  The City has always worked to expand its network of sidewalks while maintaining its existing network of sidewalks, in addition to its roadway network.  In the late 90's, the City worked with the regional experts, OKI to further enhance the network of transportation available in the area to include bike facilities.  A plan was developed as part of the comprehensive transportation plan in 2000.  The first piece of this plan that was implemented was the Sharon Road Bike Path which stretches from Ballinger to State Route 4.  This pathway was one of the first sections of a regional trail system, the Miami 2 Miami Trail, a system that was looking to connect the Little Miami trail to the proposed Great Miami trail.

In 2022, the City took a new look at the transportation plan in conjunction with the City's most recent comprehensive plan.  A final Springdale Bike and Pedestrian Connectivity Plan was prepared by local consulting firm KZF Design and adopted by Council in November of 2022.  The plan took months to develop, sought engagement from the public and looked to document existing and future connections of bike and pedestrian connections.  The City continues to look to make connections, where feasible, according to the existing Connectivity Network Vision Plan.
