 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan


The plan is designed to outline a safe, convenient and efficient bicycle and pedestrian system that provides access to major destinations within Sarasota County and surrounding counties.
The plan includes:

  • Comprehensive Plan goals, objectives and policies supporting bicycle and pedestrian needs.
  • Safety and education programs.
  • Types and designs for shared-use paths and amenities. 
  • Current bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
  • Community-recommended improvements and future needs.

The plan is intended to be a framework for future improvements and action items that can be considered within the county.

  • These action items may require policy changes, funding opportunities to be explored, and more partnerships.
  • The plan specifically provides for a long list of items, of which many are educational, that may be considered in the future.

 Public Meetings & Presentation Info


If you are interested in having a county staff member speak and present an overview of the plan to a stakeholder group, community group or association, send an email to or contact the Sarasota County Call Center at 941-861-5000.
