Bicycle Master Plan
The Bicycle Master Plan (and Appendices) identifies clear, cross-Parish routes for cyclists, and organizes capital projects by priority. The Plan was created in partnership with the Regional Planning Commission, its consultants and a seven-member citizen’s advisory committee appointed by the Jefferson Parish Council. The Council adopted the Bicycle Master Plan in April 2014 as part of the Parish Comprehensive Plan.
The American Planning Association, Louisiana Chapter awarded the Jefferson Parish Bicycle Master Plan with the 2016 Planning Excellence Award for transportation, noting that the Bicycle Master Plan aims to achieve not only goals of safety and convenience but also to leverage bicycling infrastructure to improve the Parish’s economy and quality of life.
