Assets in Place
The Fergus Falls community has been working for several years to address the need to provide a safe, equitable, and cohesive network of walking and biking facilities for residents and visitors.
Pedal Fergus Falls and the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) have led several successful efforts toward improving conditions for walking and biking in the city, including:
Taking the Next Steps
The community support, success and promise of these initiatives toward fostering a more walk- and bike-friendly community have highlighted the usefulness and potential of a formal plan for coordinating bicycle and pedestrian improvements.
The City of Fergus Falls, the BPAC, and Pedal Fergus Falls have thus begun work to fund, contract and manage the development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan for the city.
Activities and timeline
The project began in late May 2020. A completed plan is expected on or before November 2020.
Fergus Falls’ relatively compact size makes it ideally suited for growing trips by foot or bike. Shown here: portions of the city within a 10 minute walk or bike ride from City Hall. The network of routes shown was developed through a community process led by Pedal Fergus Falls. These routes will serve as a starting point for the network to be developed through this plan.
