While significant progress was made in implementing the recommended projects from the original 2007 Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan and the 2013 Update, some projects remain unimplemented. Additionally, other developments, projects, existing conditions in Naples and City/State/National policies regarding transportation facilities have changed. The best practices and design guidance for pedestrian and bicycling facilities has changed dramatically since 2007, further emphasizing the need for a new Plan update.

The intent of the 2022 Naples Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update has been to take a fresh look at existing conditions, identify the factors that impact City residents’ abilities to walk and/or bike for recreational, work, or personal needs, and present a list of recommendations to encourage walking and biking modes, while preserving the sense of place that is unique to the City of Naples.

Using the existing conditions maps and other collected data, and guided by the community input, project recommendations were identified in detail. The projects were grouped by neighborhood association boundary to facilitate review and comment from the applicable association. For each project, the corresponding neighborhood association was asked to determine if they supported, did not support, or supported with modification. The Department summarized input from each meeting.

The City of Naples is seeking input from residents and business owners on the priorities for the 2022 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Staff has worked with all neighborhood associations within the City as well as numerous stakeholders and City Council to determine priority projects within the City to be listed in the master plan. The overall goal is to receive input from residents and business owners to prioritize the condensed list of projects that will be implemented in the next five years. Feedback on overall City projects including the Bike Loop Route and roundabouts at Crayton Road and Harbour Drive and Crayton Road and Mooring Line Drive are also desired.
