Bike & Pedestrian Plan

Tipton County Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

Thank you for visiting the Tipton Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan!

Due to the scope of the project, we will not be able to personally contact every citizen. There will be a citizens advisory committee, a public survey, 3 public input meetings around the county, 2 public presentations of the draft plan, and a presentation of the final plan to the Tipton City Council and the Tipton County Commissioners. The citizens advisory committee and the county will advertise the public meetings through social media and press releases. An email contact list will be maintained throughout the project. Please see the Public Input page for more information on meeting times and locations.

The final plan will serve as a vision for trail development over the next 25 to 30 years. It is a vision that will increase property values, attract businesses, attract residents, help retain the younger generation, promote agricultural tourism, increase the overall health of the community, and increase community pride. The plan does NOT assess the technical feasibility of placing trails in particular locations, and it does NOT provide construction details for trails. The plan is intended to provide a broad vision for trail locations and design guidelines for trail construction. The plan is not “set in stone” and should be reviewed periodically as development occurs throughout the county.

Please check back often to see progress on the plan and how you can provide feedback.
