Walk and Bike Plan

Walk Bike Logo with graphic
The Longview Metropolitan Planning Organization is developing a plan for enhancing walking and biking in the greater Longview area.  This project includes an analysis of where people are most likely to walk and bike, assessment of the safety and comfort of streets and trails, and identification of community preferences for future investments. The plan will include new policies and goals for active transportation; recommendations for new sidewalks, trails, and on-street bikeways; a system for prioritizing investments; and a list of priority pedestrian and bicycle projects. The planning area for this project includes the cities of Longview, Lakeport, White Oak, Clarksville City, Warren City, Gladewater, Union Grove, and East Mountain.

Community input is vital to the success of this project, so we have prepared multiple ways for you to provide input. A special project website is available that provides an interactive experience and allows you to complete a survey, identify barriers and opportunities on a map, and learn more about the individual components of the project.

In addition to online input, there will be multiple in-person opportunity to learn more and help shape this project. Two Open House events will be held in late September and additional events are being planned for the winter.
