Trail and Transportation Planning
trail and pathway planning has been going on in Oakland County for more
than 40 years. This resulting non-motorized network is envisioned to
serve a diverse range of users of all ages and abilities, to promote
active and healthy lifestyles and to provide safe and well-maintained
linkages to important natural, cultural and civic destinations and other
points of interest within and outside the county. The 61 communities in
Oakland County represent a cross section of urban to suburban to rural.
There are a variety of non-motorized facilities that exit and are
planned to create a connected system of greenways and trails across the
staff can assist local communities and trail groups with completing
grant applications, public input workshops and surveys, trail concept
design and mapping. Contact us today to get started!
In the meantime, use the Trail Planning Checklist and Trail Tracking to help communities identify components of a trail/path network and link into the Oakland County Trail Network.
(sometimes biannually), Oakland County partners with the Michigan
Department of Transportation (MDOT) and local communities to provide
American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials
(AASHTO) Bike Facility Design Training and Walkability Reviews. We are
happy to provide a customized training.
