I hope you are doing well! I serve as a coalition member of Huron County Creating Healthy Communities, which is a grant program through Huron County Public Health, funded by the Ohio Department of Health. Our mission is to create a culture of health in Huron County by improving access to healthy & affordable food and increase opportunities for physical activity where we live, work and play.
I am reaching out to you today because we are in the process of creating a county-wide active transportation plan and just launched our draft proposal to the community to gather their input throughout the summer and would like to ask for your help in the process. Active transportation is human powered transportation that engages people in healthy physical activity while they travel from place to place. An active transportation plan provides a roadmap for improved walking and bicycling within a county. We acknowledge that our county lacks transportation systems, a connection between all communities, sidewalks, and safety infrastructure. We want to make Huron County more livable and inclusive for people of all ages and abilities by creating a transportation system that will provide a safe and well-connected bicycle and pedestrian network that will increase access for both transportation and recreational purposes.
Again, we have launched the draft proposal of the bicycle and pedestrian network map to gather public and stakeholder comments throughout the summer to help us get to a final proposal by the end of July. We are encouraging agencies to get involved to help our coalition engage stakeholders and the community and gather their input for this project by:
- Providing input on the draft bicycle and pedestrian network map proposal by visiting https://www.huroncohealth.com/atp
- Sharing information with the community
- Sharing the link to the draft bicycle and pedestrian network map on your agency webpage
- Sharing community engagement posts through social media accounts
- Placing a provided yard sign at your location. Yard sign will direct community members to the drafted map through a provided QR code.
- Placing provided flyers/brochures at agency front window
- Other ways that you feel that you can help
