Our Task

The Greenway Collaborative was hired by the City of Grand Rapids to assist with the City of Grand Rapids Bicycle Plan.  TGC prepared a non-motorized analysis toolkit for the City to use in-house to assist in the development of the Bicycle Plan.  Once the City drafted a plan, TGC evaluated the proposed facilities system and phasing approach and developed a Framework Plan to help layout a vision for the bicycle system.  The vision illustrates what can be accomplished in the near-term via neighborhood connector routes, bike lanes and off-road trails.
